six ceramic torsos on wooden palettes
40 x 145 x 135 cm
de Watertoren, Vlissingen the Netherlands, 1997
A torso detail from an earlier work, that is to say, the backside, became the source for several other artworks. By placing six stoneware torsos on two wooden pallets in this ritualistic configuration, the value of a single human being within the multitudes is juxtaposed with the posture of one who might also be praying for a better life, thereby asking the questions: how far do we really want to go with our relentless cycles of mass-producted solutions, and where are they actually bringing us?
