Vessel Nº1 (2021)

Vessel N°1 is a sculptural piece that proposes to hold on the memories it encounters.

Made of a mixture of white marble dust and concrete, the connotation of marble as a sculptural medium traditionally used to commemorate, brought together with concrete, a material used to preserve, creates a vessel that moves between past, present and future.

Vessel N°1 references the “Schwerbelastungskörper” in Berlin, a massive concrete soil inspection mechanism built by Albert Speer intended to slowly sink into the ground.

White Aalborg cement, white marble powder, sand
