ATTRACTION

Two bodies are separated by a void: one plunges from the heights, while the other breaks free from the depths, both moving towards each other without ever meeting. Drawn to one another by an irresistible attraction, these two forms seek each other without ever being able to make contact, both relentlessly attempting to overcome the distance that keeps them apart but in vain. This piece evokes the difficulty of a meeting through the painful experience of separation. Although passionately longed for, the object of desire is unattainable. Yet this unhappy union reveals the strongest link: the invisible bond of the subjects’ continued hope of an encounter.

This piece evokes the difficulty of a meeting through the painful experience of separation, a meeting relentlessly attempted but in vain.

There are two figures that this void separates: one plunges from the heights, while the other breaks free from the depths, both moving towards each other without ever meeting. Drawn to one another by an irresistible attraction, these two figures seek each other without ever being able to make contact, mutually trying to overcome the distance that keeps them apart. This work evokes the difficulty of meeting others using the painful experience of separation, something everyone can relate to. An unattainable object of desire, although passionately longed for, creates an unhappy union revealing implicitly the strongest invisible bond: that of the subjects continuing to hope to meet.

 

« Without contraries is no progression.
Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate,
are necessary to human existence. »

William Blake
