Empty Voices, 2011
20 bronze sculptures and acoustic foam
350 x 450 x 500 cm
In this specific piece, the artist’s constructive approach to sculpture draws from the Modernist tradition (chiefly from Brancusi’s birds and the elongated figures of Giacometti’s The Palace at 4 a.m.) as well as from minimalist and serial methods of musical composition as exemplified by atonalism and other avant-garde techniques such as the polyphonies of ars combinatoria.
The sculptures are cast in bronze from computer-generated molds measuring from 40 to 150 centimeters in height.
