Emil Westman Hertz
alt hvad der var er nu væk
Emil Westman Hertz' recent sculptures are organic, perishable, tactile, amorphic, changeable, both simple and complex. They contain references to nature (flowers, termitaries, hogweeds), the body (heads, fantastic creatures), and architecture (shelters, cities, towers). They are made of wax, plaster, bronze and other sculptural materials combined with mass-produced materials like medicine packaging, plastic bottles, cardboard and styrofoam. The sculptures have a pronounced tension between nature and artifice. They are models of places existing in reality and other places existing only in the imagination. In a more literal sense they constitute places to physically be in, rooms for our own body.
