At Heart

At Heart

2013

Steel, 187 x 26 cm

The sculp­ture is the product of an inten­sive process, the artist grap­pling with the material over the course of several weeks – the material being a several-hundred-kilo steel rod 26 cm thick and 187 cm long. During the process Brzeski made use of all the tools available to him: drills, files, mills and grinders.

‘At Heart’ is an extreme test of the sculp­tural genre, as well as a characteristic figure of the impos­sible, both lyrical and oppres­sive at once. Open heart sur­gery that ven­tures into a dangerous obses­sion.
