Inspired on the work of franco-belgian and south american cartoon authors, this piece belongs to a series that tries to bring to sculpture the idea that "one image equals 1000 words". By choosing the human nature as subject matter, the identification is immediate but still open to a infinite possibilities of interpretation, depending on the viewer. This is brought to focus by the choice of modeling in ceramic just the vital elements to depict a emotion - eyes, nose and mouth - the rest would just be noise. Installation with a variable number of pieces. As showed on the pictures, it`s always composed by a main element or head and several other heads of variable number, depending on the space available. The raku ceramic head is always elevated or taller than the other elements, differentiated from the other not only by the relative position but also by the colored and shiny finished that contrasts with the bland earthy tones and rough finish of the other heads. But the most important thing that makes the ceramic head to stand out is the expression: it`s the only one different and the only one smiling.

Sandra Borges is born in 1979 in Lisbon. The sculptor mostly based her work on human behavior. Sometimes looking through the stereotypes, sometimes through the eyes of a individual, it is always about how one's personality is formed and how one relates to the other and in society. Working only with Portuguese stone (marbles, limestone`s and breccia), she also mix it with other media if the idea demands it. The result is very personal way to make art objects that link the tradition of stone carving to other materials and plastic languages.
