Jericho 2015


industrial stoneware
4meter x 4meter x 1meter

The work Jericho  is a multi-part object made of industrial stoneware. It is the result of a performative installation and is a testimony of a targeted and controlled destruction process. A cylinder pressed from claystate, industrial stoneware  from sewage pipe manufacturing was drawn into the air by means of an electromagnet and then precisely dropped. Gravitation and collision created this form. The frozen image of the serve was hollowed out, burned and reconstructed in several parts. The object now consists of 24 parts and has a weight of two tons.
