White bodies

2020 – plaster and metal
Sculptures and digital drawing

White bodies is a serie of traveling sculptures with the environment as plinth, uninvited in public space. Each space can serve as the pedestal, the composition can be reconstructed over and over again. A contrast between the steadfastness of the sculpture and the transience of the action arises. In that way sculptures, often regarded as static objects, acquire the same transience as the human body.

By using her own body as a reference for the human figure, Lieze De Middeleir objectifies herself on the one hand but, on the other hand takes the viewer into a very personal story. Our human body is constantly changing, the sculptures are a snapshot of the body.
