"If you could walk in this room blindfolded, recognizing neither faces nor voices, neither intimates nor strangers, who would you judge?
May you have the courage to judge with your eyes wide open as well..."
This specific piece is made of an unknown type of root. It has been completed with a small piece of bronze and a black wooden pedestal. It has been processed with hagiography powder pigments in tiny amounts and thus the natural color of the root is starring. The piece has been finished with a varnish that Nikos Manessis makes out of pure Cretan beeswax and white spirit.
This entire collection has been co-created with nature itself, inspired by and communicated by nature to the artist. Nikos Manessis argues that each root had already told him what it should be shaped into before he started the process. He followed the shape as well as the wood grain of each root to allow everyone else to see what he could see beforehand.
