Sculpting the exhibition space to virtually color the air we breathe. Literal, sublime iron ladies take over the space. Standing up to visitors, they undulate sensuously as much as they slice through the void. Their curved metal sheet-like physicality creates fullness and unclarity, enclosing a little space within them. These metallic ellipses play on their apparent lightness, which subtly contradicts their monumentality.
