In love (after Brancusi)

2004 to 2008
Bronze and hinge
25 x 25 x 25 cm

lnspired in the Brancusi's piece "The Kiss" 1908, this work recombines geometric shapes with a warm allegory of the human body. lt can be viewed in two positions (open and closed), the piece evokes the relationship or contradiction between love and sexuality. When the piece is closed, it creates the perfect geometrical shape (a cube). Like in Brancusi's work, it represents love like a monolithic element created by a couple's union. But when the piece is open, a sexual allusion breaks the minimal perfection of the sculpture, revealing an intimate space.
