Hands | 2019



I wanted to create small sculptures that would allude to certain body organs about which we know little. To this end, I resorted to a set of paraffin hands — cast almost 20 years ago by transforming them with the heat of my body and the pressure of the thousands of meters of thread that I used to swathe them.

  • paraffin and blended sewing thread
  • 28 sculptures of variable dimensions
  • EXHIBITIONS: “O que a gente não tem coragem de jogar fora”, Galeria Inox, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
