Archetype / 2023

Silicon is a rather sticky synthetic material used for its water repellency and insulating properties, delineating an element of which humans are largely composed. The chemical definition refers to a group of synthetic polymers in which silicon atoms are linked via oxygen atoms. Another link can be made to the epicentre of the digital world, Silicon Valley, even if only in name. 

Uniting all these different aspects, the Silicon series can be described as a collection of digital fragments. An attempt is made to transfer digital processes into our reality, a surrealistic endeavour and thus the core theme of this series. Craft techniques such as silkscreening, metalworking and cutting techniques are largely used to model these works. A bit of a paradox nonetheless, the works thus embody exactly the opposite of humanity, and alongside the synthetic material XPS, which is 90% air, the soft malleable material contrasts the material of its metal support frame, which is used as a kind of device for an indefinable exhibit. This series of works is sculptural and image in equal parts, finding its origins in the surreal to ultimately be representative.
