Nature and creation, division and composition. Thodoris Trampas offers a process of union through destruction – a need for reconciliation. In an enclosed space, for seven weeks and eight hours each day, a body is set against the material world – a large piece of rock – in order to create its replica in plaster. This sense of copying, and of repetition, is a way of experiencing the existence of nature from scratch. Smashing the rock differentiates the copy from the original.
