Rope, 2014

Silicone and stainless steel
150 × 140 × 15 cm

“The first rope I made was in the “shape” of a person. I looked at it later and immediately realized it was a mistake to give it an image. I just needed remove the reference, it needed to loose its specificity. Now they are just sort of abstractions in space, they can be many things at once.” – Tony Matelli
