LOOKS LIKE I OWN YOU NOW - FOUR HARES builds on the theme of the hunt, the relationship between humans and animals and the human urge to protect and cherish animals
as well as to own them. Catinka
Kersten made this series of sculptures for her graduation from the Royal Academy of Art. The series has been acquired by the Caldic Collectie, Wassenaar ( The Netherlands).
To make these sculptures, skins of textile are filled with liquid plaster. Subsequently Catinka Kersten invites someone to hold the animals for half an hour while the plaster is hardening.
In this way the hares’ imperfect forms come into being; without any direct control and partly formed by humans.
Next to the sculptures Catinka Kersten’s creative process can be followed live as she works on a new project.
