– Sculpture (performance)

Title: To recall means to transform

Venue: Numismatic Museum

Date: 16-22 March 2017

Hour: 12:00 - 16:00



“To recall means to transform” is a sculpture - interaction piece that engages with a statue, in the form of partially covering it with a nexus of polygon paper modules. This process of transformation is at the core of this performance-sculptural installation as it gradually and in real time spreads on the body of the statue like a virus.  The structures explore the intersection of art, history and technology. They act as a second, 21st century skin. The whole process invites the public to watch the reconstruction of the ancient body.

This intervention is about our relationship with memory and history, the transformation of the past, the distance between the ancient culture and today’s reality, the legacy of our ancient heritage and how we manage it in a historical, political and technological context.
