We live in divisive times: Brexit, anti vaxxers, flat earthers, climate change, alternative facts. The driving force behind Hurst’s work is to seek out the common ground between us – to propose an object that can be widely agreed upon. With Hora Virtrum, Hurst creates an object whose formal and conceptual considerations were taken from as many universally accepted facts and points of view as possible.
