2012 Project ON OFF, Fabrica ASA, Guimarães, Portugal

“Entpuppung” (eclosion) was a work in progress installation for the project ON OFF at the former textile factory ASA during Guimarães – European Capital of Culture 2012.

I designed five bags in fabric of different shapes and on the opening day of the event I filled them up with liquid graphite. During the duration of the exhibition the aggregate dried and at the end like the eclosion of an insect from the pupa case five sculptures of compact graphite were born.

Production of the project ON OFF: Cultural Association Saco Azul, Porto
