Prospects and Concepts, Rotterdam Artfair 2014.

Van Nelle Fabriek, Rotterdam, NL 


 

For the Prospects and concepts exhibition at Rotterdam Art fair 2014,

two gelatin blocks were presented. Each weighing approximately 100 kg

the blocks were casted on the spot at the Van Nelle Fabriek.

Wanting to create a sexy work to show off at the fair, the gelatin had a

seductive appeal attracting viewers to touch it. When activated by a visitors

touch the sculptures had a strong sexual resemblance in their jiggly substantial

appearance. Both blocks were intended to stand upright however gelatin being

a living material the weight of their own body caused them to fall over during

the five days of the show.

Contributing factors as light, heat and touch induced the gelatin to slowly

decompose and left the blocks literally 'sweating' from exhaustion at the end

of the show.
