These two small art pieces, collectively titled “Durch Wind und Wetter” (seperately titled “Wind” and “Wetter”) are the result of a process of experimentation with new materials, which I started in the autumn of 2015. I became interested in the material of threaded wire rods because of their intruiging yeilding/unyielding qualities, and in the process of experimentation, combined them with various other materials such as plastic sheets, paper, fabics, stone and wood plates. “Durch Wind und Wetter” constitutes an interesting interplay between two different materials, which in combination form a playful act of tension and flexibility, a kind of struggling dance, resulting in a fragile yet solid balance.
