An In situ installation of buried sculptures on the petrified forest of Sigri. The sculptures are parts of “excavated” practice/tecnique in which the sculptures are crafted by delving into a mass of sand and creating negative spaces. The process yields unpredictable shapes and textures, as the form emerges organically from the interaction of the body, tools, and material. The emergence of the process involves a deep rethinking of the role of the material as well as the tools of manufacture. The tool is redefined and the material accordingly brings to the surface the visual forms of its properties. The body as a medium is a main characteristic of the method as its possibilities and proportions determine the final sculpture. That process has abandoned traditional sculpture where the sculptor removes volumes or adds to form the material and instead excavates the negative of the sculpture in order to cut himself off from control of the outcome. Τhe turn to the body not only signals the disappearance of the object from art, but also, paradoxically, the rejection of the artist’s ego. Through the "excavated" technique the works resemble natural (not human made) entities. This visual sense is reminiscent of the pre-Socratic philosophers' formulation of the word "nature" where they used it not as a birth but as a manifestation of what remains hidden.
