The piece is a hymn to marble; a 10 x 2m wall consisting of 7 marble pieces of different origin, natural history, color, texture and image.
These marble pieces are treated with various traditional and digital techniques of workmanship that mingle with the inherent material narrations; holes, hidden or visible cuts, two or three dimensional relief, digital or handmade print, imagery from the past and the future, light. Consequently, marble is revealed not as the clean and current matter we are accostomed to seeing it as, but rather as a rich, thick live object that hides and reveals stories, can be transformed into a painting, stands up and even creates space.
