Polished steel is tested on its flexibility as a possible “new soft skill”. It is being twisted and torn to maximal extent under a blow torch by the artist’s own manpower.
The resulting variations of fragile and delicate stands are used for hanging work clothes and older artworks. The stands are presented in a former power plant, which today, in the post-industrial era, has been turned into a multi-functional building that houses the exhibition space as well as other event spaces.
