About The Artwork
This unique in a series bronze scuplture is an exclusive edition for House of Voltaire. Bircken’s use of materials is often broadly discussed in terms of its relationship to craft. Traces of the hand, from careful metal working, to surface abrasions, cumulatively record both physical labour and the biography of the object. Confronting these competing tendencies, repetition and uniformity give way to the haptic qualities of the bronze material.
