ANTI-AIRCRAFT GIRL: A NEW SCULPTURAL INSTALLATION BY STEFAN BLOM 15 April – 8 May 2014

Anti-aircraft girl (2014) – the sculptural amalgamation of a female torso with the mechanism of an anti-aircraft weapon – is an immersive installation which ironically emphasizes non-participation. The polychrome fibreglass figure implies a complex and reciprocal relationship between its sculptural form and the colour enhancing it, modified into a mutual dependency. The artist’s intention is to explore the complex relationships when a personal sense of morality goes up in arms against authoritative coercion.
