Pierced Lead Works

Back to Sculpture

From the late 1980s to the early 90s, the late bodycase works became increasingly hermetic, rather than making connections between the internal and external space. The Learning To See series, for the first time, indicates the curvature of the closed eyes, which amplifies the hermeticism and internal pressure of the lead case. All the Learning To See pieces (which continued in iron), attempt to connect an absolute stillness with a visible internalisation of energy.
