Warm Cave

Warm Cave is a sculpture created in situ and constituted of cement plaster bands and charcoal. The 120 x 180 cm sculpture, in black, white and grey, leans from a wall and seems to grow out of it - or to be peeling off of it - like sloughing skin. It appears to be an organic shape made with cement. Its mass reveals a landscape similar to a relief map of mountains. To stand, the sculpture needs the wall as a support. And whereas, in architecture, this is usually hidden under a wall, here, this structure becomes a form beyond the wall.
