'Battle of the remains III' is the marble sculpture that I'm planning to make within the next months. I took photos from a dear friend's back - hard work, because I didn't really know how to ask her to pose. I only had a vague idea. The night before she came, I had a really strange dream. I was in the livingroom of my sisters place, with our children. There was something going on outside so I went to the window to have a closer look. I seemed to me it was an outburst of a gigantic vulcano, and I immediately knew that this was it. I turned around, wanted to say something but realised that there was nothing really I could say. Within seconds everybody was going to be dead. I turned my back to the window and tried to take my youngest child, who was near me, to pull her under me. Then it was all white and I woke up; all confused...
But: it is that sort of back that I want to make in marble, the still of a movement, the fragility and strongness and the remains also..
