As you can cut into stone and wood, you can also cut into space.
This wooden sculpture of 1058cm long was placed
in a big, open and monumental space with no other artworks around. The start of the work was
an interest in space as a volume and mass. As a sculptor you can cut into wood, stone and other
materials and I wanted to cut into space. Because space itself can not physically be cut I
materialized the hypothetical cut and gave it volume and mass, this resulted in the wooden
sculpture. During the installation of the work I was looking to cut the space I was assigned in a
precise and exciting way. Despite the size and the present set up the work did not felt out of
place or “in your face”. The way I installed it made sure that the work was different from every
angle in the space and that the viewer experienced tension and some feeling of risk.
