ALUO, sculpture course: The Absence is Present
»The installation puts into juxtaposition memories of previous lives that have transpired and occupied the places and filled voids in the Cukrarna palace. Layers of different materials grow out of the inner emptiness, reintroducing new life in this way, with a play of textures colours and light, to an abandoned industrial object.« /artists/
