Wieviel Stücke? 1994-2002
A tableau or "scene" of five male figures in original plaster. These pieces were modeled in clay and rags. Title originates from Primo Levi book, If This is a Man. Germans referred to arriving detainees, about to go through "selections", as "pieces", as if they were pieces of wood. This mournful band enact their uncertain fate. This piece does not presume to be a Holocaust sculpture. It only draws inspiration from Primo Levi's writings.
