Marble, steel; 142 x 32 x 24" (360 x 80 x 60 cm)
The two elements of Prehistory are worked after existing artifacts from two different prehistoric cultures, a hand-size canonical figure from the Cycladic Islands and a floating Bear from the Igloolik region in northern Canada . The small originals are up scaled – and two cultures are literally put head to head. The figures open a field of associations for the viewer, physically and metaphorically and emphasize a changing awareness of time. The cultural objects gain importance through the reflection on the viewer as a cultural being.
