Germoglio (BUD)


Brick and blood
30 X 20 X 6,5 cm.

Eight hours with the hand in the wall, eight hours as a measurement system, the time needed to make the event less theatrical, to undermine the humanity of the body and the mineral static nature of a building.

The body undergoes the immobility of the building which is equipped with a human appendage.


After eight hours a sprout emerges from the brick to underline a change in progress.


The brick used comes from the rubble produced by attempting to demolish and clear Bivsi Zapori (Metelkova, Ljubljana) of the occupants.
