1995-2006, land art
Gellertgut – Basle / Switzerland
— A seven-meter-long hand which at once offers and asks for peace.
In the two days during which the cut hay from which the work is made was drying, the internal supporting structure was constructed. Then the hay was sewn (not tied) with a specially made needle. This was the only way to make the fleshy parts of the hand. The hand is deliberately deformed to lend dynamism to the work.
Length: 7 meters.
