Busts (reverse process), 2012 | 2014

plaster cast
dimensions variable | unique piece

The twenty-one  busts of this cycle all derive from the same mold. The starting point of this process is a polystyrene block of cm. 49 x 36 x 28, in which the shape of a bust is excavated. The resulting cast is then filled with plaster. When the plaster hardens the bust is freed by breaking it polystyrene. The broken pieces of the whole cast are again reassembled to cast the next bust. At each new casting the mold disintegrates and loses more and more its original shape. Over the polystyrene mold decreases, the more increases the volume of the next bust of plaster. In this way the torso is distancing itself more from its main aspect, creating more and more abstract forms to become a box.
