Standing Stones

ADAM – Brussels Design Museum
2020, Installation
Inflatable biodegradable plastic, Polished Stainless Steel, acrylic

Building upon the legacy of the Cycladic culture and its influence on contemporary art Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis of Objects of Common Interest Studio present a series of sculptures in an immersive installation that simultaneously furthers the Studio’s ongoing study into softness—both in form and as a material quality.

 

Cast as translucent inflatables, what was heavy, solid, hard is now light, airy, and soft shifting a reinterpretation of ancient forms allowing for viewers to develop new relationships to the work.

 

The Standing Stones are placed upon large, mirror surfaces that create a totem like effect as the forms reflect in them, further creating an illusion to the viewer rendering the sculptures larger than life.

 

An ever-changing assemblage of forms is presented as one moves past, under, and between the sculptures. Amidst the Standing Stones field a ceremonial circular seating array is positioned around another reflective pond inviting visitors to gather, rest and experience the spatial transformation, to find an inner moment to contemplate and self reflect.
