Construction IV

Construction IV

 

500 beige Borrèze sandstone building blocks
Black paper and white ink

275cm x 120cm x 110cm (sculpture)
110cm x 75cm (drawing)

(2017)

 

The work consists of 500 sandstone building blocks and a framed hand-drawn construction drawing.

The blocks have been cut and sanded into 10 different basic shapes, based on children's wooden toy blocks. These are built into a construction, based on the construction drawing on black paper.

The blocks are not affixed in any way, but placed on top of each other in a specific building order.
