By The River (Angel Falls)
Bronx Museum, New York
The Fourth AIM Biennial
July - October 2017
Part self-portrait, part journal, this soft sculpture was made from traditional paper receipts saved over time. The receipts were sewn together in one continuous line that twists and turns giving the work its fluid shape.
Conceived as a drawing, the analogue and material nature of the work speaks about financial data and its cumulative weight.
Gravity plays an important role as the work hangs from a single hook that holds the piece together from its head.
The title of the piece is taken from one of the chapters of “Siddhartha” by Herman Hesse. The subtitle pays homage to the world's highest uninterrupted waterfall.
