Between Heaven and Earth - 2021
This sculpture of bronze shows a person huddled in despair. You, as a friend, are trying to help by lifting the person up where the person begs heaven for help. However when you leave, the person collapses again in utter despair.
The sculpture is composed of 3 parallelogram linkages and 1 so-called anti-parallelogram linkage, which is the one representing the torso and has the upper part move in a mirrored way with respect to the lower part. All the bars and also the base have a profile of a teardrop emphasizing the sadness of the sculpture.
