In The Stone Ax I am juxtapose the original object with its exact 3D printed replica. What is the difference between the two identical objects, if any? Is there a difference is emotional response to each object, and if so, what is the difference? In one hour I am performing with these two object and exploring these questions.
By created these performative images I explore the relationship between an object and the myth of this object.
Mathias Øland Ribe is meanwhile capturing moments in my handling these two object. Mathias is a London based fashion photographer, that I had worked with as a stylist and I was interested in his astatic point of view. This relationship between my art and my work in a commercial context feeds in to this juxtaposition of the two stone tools.
