Tacape

1986
  • iron wire, iron, ferrite
  • 1700 mm

Works carried out with groups of magnets. They are anisotropic  ferrite magnets type, broken in several sizes or rectangular blocks. The magnets attaches strands of wire, bring the glass bottles together, hold iron pins and fillings to serve different continents.

 

Iron filings and copper sheets cover a heap of fragmented magnets clustered in the shape of a bludgeon that is lent against the wall. The bludgeon shape, born from the line, may conceal another line in the form of a braid or a walking stick. The set rests heavily on the promise of a possible reunification. The suggestion of a gender that is often found in Tunga’s work may be perceived here in the contrast between Trança (Braid) and TaCaPe (Bludgeon).
