Artist in Residence at C.R.E.T.A.Rome Studio
Während dieses Arbeitsaufenthaltes sind mehrere Serien und Entwürfe entstanden.
Being in the C.R.E.T.A. Rome ceramics studio for the period of a month, I took the opportunity to advance my studies of the nature of clay.
Instead of firing some of the objects, I reversed the process, transforming them anew through dissolving them in water. I took the dried-out clay figure „Tiber Man“ to Tiber Island. Sitting on the sand bank at the end of the island, the sculpture was partly lapped by the waves. The next day, I discovered that the „Tiber Man“ had partially dissolved. The waves had not taken him away. He had become an antique Roman figure.
