The Integrity of Fertility

Mild steel chain, mild steel, ostrich egg and iron 68 kg weight

250 x 190 x 15 cm


My practice elaborates on natural structures and pushes them to their limits with the intervention of technology. By concentrating my energy on a very particular part of a natural object or process and introducing mechanical aggregates, a harmony between the two spectrums of the world is established. My ideas are evolving with that of the modern world, looking closely at twenty-first-century physics and new-age technology, but the core of my development as a sculptor reflects heavily on pioneering engineering of the twentieth century.
