WALL

2008-2015. Action.
Wooden Wall 420 cm x 250 cm.

One person holds up a wall that would otherwise fall. The work plays on the attempt to achieve stability by pushing one’s strength to the limit: the potential energy remains in its potential state. The work addresses the act of one body preventing an irreversible fall by trying to maintain an uncomfortable equilibrium.
