With this sculpture group I wanted to show the dominant behaviour of leaders who shake hands at a summit meeting. Basically a ‘gaze down’, monkey behaviour, because only one can be the leader… 

As often happens during the process, my starting point changed when I separated the two images from each other. I saw that no matter how I put them down, they just kept communicating with each other and with no one else. Their own bubble that is maintained even at a great distance. Beautiful this human interaction, did you know what that looks like?
