Dance

1982
Sculpture, Stone
Carving follows the possibilities inherent to the stone. This collaboration is limited, but the other way is confrontation. What is required is a certain irrationality which a promising stone inhabits. Confrontation may lead to conquest, conquest over oneself, of course, not the stone. Art is more this than compromise: to override the inhibitions that bind.
