In the astonishing world of Cirque du Soleil anything seems possible. Most amazing is the contradiction between the impossibility of the movements and the apparent ease in which they are executed. Important are skills like strength, flexibility, balance and focus.
Animals have their own specific beauty in both expression and movements. In animals I often see similarities with the things that amaze me in Cirque du Soleil.
Through a series of sculptures I have tried to express these skills and share my admiration for both the animal and Cirque du Soleil.

 


Balance 1 shows the precise moment in which the various forces of the body are in complete balance with one another. This horse is standing on a platform, ready to step onto an imaginary rope like a tightrope walker, without any hesitation.
