Art, Ben Storms, Sculptures
In Hale Wallpiece is a work that reflects light. Made of inflated stainless steel, brass or copper—a technique of which the results are always unpredictable—it takes the shape of a cushion. Storms inflates sheet metal against a piece of stone and thereby transforms it into a three-dimensional shape which echoes the shape of the stone. This process not only changes the look but also the structural properties of the metal. He first explored this idea for the In Hale table, where the cushion supports a massive block of marble. Here, the cushion is left by itself and placed against the wall. Like other works by Ben Storms, it defies our archetypical preconceptions of materials, shapes and functions: the solid and heavy metal here looks soft and functions as some sort of mirror by reflecting light in a poetic manner. Edition of 8 + 2 A.P. Variations of In Hale Wallpiece can be custom made.
