ROBERT SOROKO

°1990, B

lives and works in Antwerp

 

Robert Soroko 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. We already saw his works combining soft bamboo with iron. During the Covid-19 lockdown he started to work on a series for outside. This new steel figures come in clear basic colours. Making a different intervention depending on the material an space. They recall to figures out of old cultures, their slow elegant movements inspired by Tai-Chi, organic figures that seem walking out of another world.
