Whenever one takes a break from work, sculptures are usually covered in drop cloths to preserve the clay and maintain a constant humidity. Image and mask become thus one, simultaneously. Those worn, old rags conceal these unfinished sculptures in the same way a curtain hides the stage behind it. STILL —referring to a single photographic print, or to one frame of motion-picture film, but also in the sense of quietness, calm and silence, groups together a series of sculptures made out of unfinished sculptures freezed in the midst of their own creative process.

A book was born out of these series of sculptures; a book containing texts, images and music; a multidisciplinary project that records the singular experience of 20 spectators before the same series of sculptures, transforming them into a collective narrative.
