OLD WORLD APES, 2014

The meeting of a chimpanzee, a gorilla and a baboon. Each of the figures is made of a different material and technique. The chimpanzee consists of riveted metal, the gorilla of screwed plastic and the baboon of nailed wood. The Old World Apes deal with the question of how much material and manufacturing process determine the shape and character of a figure.
