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.

 

The ultimate balance. The horse moves like an acrobat and uses the cylinder for his performance. He has just flipped the cylinder straight up and now stands in complete balance.
