Exhibition with new work Tension II

Group exhibition Herlangen Verinneren 2 in de Vishal, Haarlem Netherlands.
One of my works is Tension II. It's a work I started in 2004 and finished it recently!

Tension II   2004 - 2011

The sculpture is a metaphorical translation of a necessary medically circumcision. The skin is put in a glass container and is pushed in the bronze phallus. It can be seen from the peephole at the top of the bronze. The silicone rubber mold serves as a counterweight to keep the bronze phallus in balance.
