Bronze and stone unique 2016 . Displayed at Cubitt steps Canary Wharf London London E14 4QA, by Based Upon UK
The sculpture is compressed of five tons of granite and bronze. It celebrates their second public sculpture following the unveiling of the ten meter high grain of rice in Hong Kong.
The sculptures stone and bronze form recalls a primitive tool. Conjuring notions of early human production, the fragmented work questions whether the making and trading of things created a fissure in mans connection with nature’s wholeness.
Arrow-like, the sculpture points toward the Isle of Skype, the works conception and physical origin, provoking notions of displacement and homecoming.
The finely sculpted cast bronze ‘fixes’ the rock’s severed edge, More than wabi sabi, highlighting the preciousness of the imperfection, this asks whether human attempts to fix the cracks of nature are futile: cosmetic, prosthetic fallacy.
