Early Single Lead Bodycase Works

Back to Sculpture

After the making of the three-part lead bodycase works, I started making single lead bodycases for a standing man: Untitled For Francis, Breath, Address, Part, Ask, Standing Ground, Peer, Across The Air, Moment. These works tried to repossess the standing male figure, but in a different way from heroic sculpture. Untitled For Francis uses the allusion to the stigmata to make five eye-shaped holes that give access to the darkness of the body. Breath has bullet holes of the same calibre as Seeds and the gun in Fruits Of The Earth.
