Korapiloa - Alexandra Harley
Artist: Alexandra Harley
Dimensions: 21 x 28 x 21 cm
Material: Bronze, bronze wire, patina
The swirl of the wire creates a cloud linking through two small, pierced bronze elements. The confusion of the wire zipping around with visual speed suspends the two larger pieces and holds them apart, they are together but separated out. Each bronze element has a physical relationship with the whole by the literal wire connection. As a result, the wire is an essential and highly conspicuous, essential and physically integrated component within the sculpture, delineating additional spaces.
