Katja Toporski | “The pieces I present here each contain two fragments of castings in a white material. One is in the form of an hourglass, the other from a 3D model taken by the Rosetta space probe of the Churyumov- Gerasimenko comet. They talk about space, its complex relationship to time, and the human quest for understanding our place in this world. A third component joins those two parts, cylindrical in form, and made of intricately pierced silver. Their pierced out lines follow the lines created by the cave people in the Chauvet cave in Southern France, depicting scenes of wild animals hunting, bearers of the mysteries of cultural expression. While the silver cylinders in the pieces add their own part to the story, silver is also employed to connect all three parts together, acting as the unifying material to all three.”(*)
