Dust, 2019

Solo exhibition at Centrum, Berlin DE.

Dust consists of four armoured clay arms with vessels of water hovering above them. In the run of the exhibition, the water will slowly drip down onto them and the clay will dissolve. The gesture of decay might first recall the end of Joan of Arc, but moreover, the artist questions what happens when we remove our armour and thus the stiff façade that we maintain in public for our own protection. Are the consequences purely negative or can we not also benefit from the revelation of our vulnerable side?
