Little Monuments / 2019
The introduction of pieces of old mattress foam, combined with rusty metal, formed what could be either small finished pieces, or maquettes for something much larger.

The foam was a way of investigating an unstable ground, something that yielded; but there is also something about a material without memory: the paradox of old mattresses both remembering and forgetting all the people that once have used them.An attempt destabilize, of creating an unstable situation.
