Myofibril IV The Kiss / Qibla was a reaction to the recent attacks. The sculpture reminds of two bodies facing each other as two proud territorial animals, displaying themselves in the most imposing way to intimidate the other. At the same time, however, they move their 'head' and start to grow towards each other at the base, like a burgeoning embrace.
Instead of focusing on what separates us we should focus on our similarities.
The unfinished aspect reinforces the feeling that the sculptures are still in construction and growing but might also be seen as starting to fall apart. This duality of interpretation is central to the way I relate my work to life’s visceral emotions, struggles and tensions, representing the battle between the conscious and the unconscious mind. The deceptive nature of modern media is also expressed by imitating real objects or textures using completely different materials.
