Amos Anderson, Helsinki  2003

The human figure is a familiar shape for viewers by scale and form, and thus immediately recognisable. Through the presentation of the human body, meanings are conveyed to the perceiver directly, without conceptualisation. On the one hand, the human body is a separate fragment, on the other, a coherent whole. In the Amos Anderson Art Museum exhibition, I presented four human-shaped sculptures made of body-tinted plaster. The scale was in relation to the models. The series was a study on the perception of an image and an object and their relationship with the surrounding space.
