Legs (2014)

During the summer of 2012 Rebecca Lenaerts started working on a new installation which consists of 20 different ceramic legs. In June 2014 there was a first try out at an old farmyard in Halmaal (St-Truiden/Belgium). The legs were suspended in the former stable of the boar (male pig).

Due to the slow working process inherent in the interaction with clay, the process developed into a frictional dialogue between ‘hands’ and ‘head’. In this process, aspirations and reality, ability and lack of perfection meet each other. The act of sculpting these legs lead to a situation of stasis.
