First Topographies / First Geometries
Zilberman Gallery, Berlin, The Common Ancestor, 2018
Two works as a study in the gesture of the pointing finger as a claiming of territory and power.
In First Geometries a series of right-handed leather gloves appear empty and abandoned on a surface. Their animated index fingers compulsively try to point in random directions.
First topographies is a series of clay fingers fitted with neodyme magnets and held by thin threads to a wall or object. A second neodyme magnet in an opposing module attracts the finger so that it becomes suspended in mid-air.
