Metal, Plaster, Paraffin Wax, 2023

The Installation Olympia (COR.145-PED.510) consists of a large metal surgical table on which rests a stiff human torso, and a lower plate with multiple reproductions of feet, hands, bottoms, breasts, eyes and hearts. This treatment station – that could seem to be part of a scientific laboratory, a mortuary, a hospital surgery room, a spare part depot, or a museum restoration centre – contains pieces that allude to two sculptures made by Arno Breker in 1936, ‘Die Siegerin’ (The Champion) and ‘Der Zehnkämpfer’ (The Decathlete), that still stand today in their original place in Berlin. In Olympia (CER.810), 33 human brains are neatly organised on three shelves of a service cart.
