Blind Sculpture

Greene Naftali Gallery, New York, USA

For our first show at Greene Naftali Gallery we made a sculpture being blindfolded. During the work process we did not look at the sculpture at all.
The workspace was sourrounded by bleachers to accomodate the audience. After 8 afternoons in an row we opened our blindfolds.
Gelatin was assisted by the best assistants ever.
