Gelatine, water, red food coloring.
Prospects and Concepts, Rotterdam Artfair 2014.
Van Nelle Fabriek, Rotterdam, NL
Two blocks of gelatine, each weighing aproximately 100 kg, were casted on the spot in the Fan Nelle Fabriek. The seductive appeal attracted visitors to touch it an when activated by visitors hands the sculptures had a strong sensual resemblance.
Contributing factors such as light, heat and touch induced the gelatine to slowly decompose and at the end of the show the blocks were literally ‘sweating’ from exhaustion and left a lingering smell of decay.
Below a short video documentation.
Thanks to LCH for sponsoring 150kg of gelatine
