In “Rubber, Steel” I explore different aspects of the materiality of metal. Archetypal structures reminiscent of industry are juxtaposed with experimental emotive approaches. I leverage the tensions between impersonal materials, forms, techniques and the emotional layer below.

This Installation juxtaposes metal as structure and industrial material with metal as emotive and introspective media. A Lamp and a frame are creating a tense space, the viewer must make a choice, to interfere to face the work or to walk around it. In this way the spectator is an actor of the scenery and is included in the ongoing unfolding of tensions. In the frame, burnt rubber and burnt stainless steel are hanging, surrounded by forged work. The viewer is free to contemplate their material features and emotional potential.
