Grandfather

Grandpa’s Portrait is a piece consisting of classic sculpted portrait, an installation and a video. It tells the story of an exeptional man, an amateur inventor, a retierd railroad man, a husband, a father and a grandfather.

The urge to create this portrait orginates from my fascination with the figure of my grandfather and his work. What is espetially important to me in this case is the archival nature of the work. The result that I present to the viewer does not include the hundreds of photographs taken and several hours of recordings of memories. It axpands a regular family album to create new value. I also aproached this topic in order to build better relationship with a loved one and to dedicate my time and attention to this person.
