"Porous Hand"

Porcelain

2009


"From the ceiling nylon cords hang down like rainfall. Attached to these threads of rain a mass of paired hands, cupped into a posture of begging. The pairs of hands are densley packed together, turned against each other,
about two feet off the ground. The hands look hurt, like they would come undone. The begging hands are made of glazed porcelain, casted. Rice grains were pushed into the surface of the porcelain, they vanish in the firing
process. The rice leaves holes, giving the hands an appearance of porosity; the more rice the hands held the stronger the injury. Naturally this installation is not about the kind of begging that is a most familiar view in our everyday-life, on the streets of the cities. Really, every human is begging - for attention - maybe without being aware of it. Therefor the jumbled array of paired hands partly turned towards each other. This begging comes from everyone and turns to many directions, it’s insatiable. The more attention someone receives, the more their self is actually becoming disintegrated. Hands are also a symbol for the ability to grasp something intellectually.The more the hands are injured, the less they can take hold of or grasp. Begging hands are unable to give at the same time.”
