“For the Biennale, we intend to continue our research with replicas of bronze Popsicle sticks. Our sole prototype is the 1:1 scale model of a guitarist. This first experiment has allowed us to test the solidity of the material and the effectiveness of the faux-finish that creates the illusion of genuine Popsicle sticks.
We approach the project with the trump card of sturdiness and illusion in fragile and makeshift materials in the back of our minds. We set out to create sculptures that would be improbable if they were made of coffee stir-sticks, yet feasible thanks to the properties of bronze and faux-finish.”
