The project Scholze describes for Eckbos Legat Anniversary Exhibition invites us into a habitat inhabited by monkey-like figures in human sizes, with an atmosphere that smells of primeval times and something jarring. The work group touches on questions of time in an evolutionary perspective: what was before and what is now? Scholze's figures can act as images of ourselves, and produce existential reflections and questions about our ambivalent relationship with nature.
- By making them in a size close to our own, you will feel their presence more strongly on the body and physically in the room. Some creatures will interact with each other, others will sit by themselves. Together, the aim is to create mood, movement, composition and presence in the room, Scholze says about her sculptures.
