unvolumetric SCULPTURE

unvolumetric sculpture - from form to space
1981 - spatial delineation, planes - perpendicular junction - 200x400x200 x2cm thick steel - proposal for the Bijlmer police station and fire station in Amsterdam (see the result of the second proposal)

towards unvolumetric  sculpture

The term unvolumetric was coined by the architects Aldo Aymonino and George Hascup - originally it was used in the context of unvolumetric architecture.

The publication contemporary public space - unvolumetric architecture by Aldo Aymonino and Valerio Paolo Mosco, published by SKIRA in 2006, shows my earthwork homage to El Lissizky in Lelystad The Netherlands on pages 266 and 267.

After making my first bronze sculptures as shapes in space, their inside space started to get my increasing attention.

Already in the first half of the twentieth century (in which I was born) Barbara Hepworth had introduced the idea of piercing the solid mass of sculpture with a "hole". Henry Moore said "The first hole made through a piece of stone is a revelation."

The hole is only a beginning towards experiencing the inside of the sculpture, for me it was my bronze sculpture extorus which later proved to be a point of departure.
