Twisted Logic

Taking as its central theme the historical fact that bronze artworks were often melted down to create weapons and armour, with this process potentially reversed in times of peace, Twisted Logic articulates the ambiguous relationship that can exist between culture and politics. Art can be created or destroyed depending on political regimes.

Using cast sections from the artist’s body, Rrap’s bronze Arti-facts suggest an originary sculptural pose now transformed into objects that exist in an uncertain space between weaponry and armament. The artist’s body becomes the ‘material’ for these sculptural works through direct silicon moulding and casting in bronze; the effect creates an amalgam of vulnerability and strength that highlights the body ‘within’ conflict.
