Robert Soroko (B, lives and works in Antwerp) searches for possibilities to keep his sculptures mobile. By wind or by hand they move very subtile, almost invisible.
Hard materials like metal he gives form, they show a captured movement, as if the welding has suddenly stopped. Although they are robust they show a purified simple line. Combining wood with iron. Or steel figures that come in clear basic colours. Making a different intervention depending on the material and space.
They recall to figures out of old cultures, their slow elegant movements inspired by Taijiquan, organic figures that seem walking out of another world.
