Casts

Clothes silently wrap around bodies, upholstery takes shape of furniture and curtains cover private lives.

Peculiar things happen when fabrics are allowed to be the ones who shape. Soft skins offer their insides to the casts. Lumpy forms and furry concrete – they embody the lightness and flow of textiles. The casts’ gestures are unfamiliar, yet friendly. Like melted mutants, they negotiate views of inside, outside, soft and hard.

Spilling their guts out, the casts build spaces and form landscapes, luring you into their terrain.
