HOME MADE ENERGY shows how, with the addition of warmth, sculptures can suggest a sense of physicality. It is an invisible energy that we perceive with the body not the eye. For instance, in the form of radiating heat or when we are touched. The vast WARMTEBEELD IX / WARMTH SCULPTURE IX commands attention by virtue of its presence in the space. To all appearances, the work seems cladded in soft cushions, but these turn out to be ceramic tiles, like those that cover the projecting cube. This element is heated and may be gently touched. But physical contact doesn’t go unnoticed—fingers and hands leave traces.
