WE DO MATTER
While Steur’s work dawns from a fascination with natural material such as stone and water, Matea Bakula produces sculptures of a more synthetic nature. Both artists are intrigued by the effects a small intervention can generate to material. Joining forces for the first time, they made themselves part of the geological process of rock formation. A rock that has had centuries to form, is submitted to the craftsmanship of splitting and the alchemy of reunification. ‘We Do Matter’ is both an auditory and visual performance in which the artists examine the dynamics of matter.
