Installation of two ceramic heads and two wood stairs elements. Reflection about how everything is cyclical, how almost all human history, either personal or with a capital H, can be defined with moments of "up", with a overwhelming sense of optimism and achievement, and "Downs", where the sense of fear and disappointment rule. This piece belongs to a series inspired in the idea focal to cartoon that "a image equals 1000 words". By choosing the human nature as subject matter, the identification is immediate but still open to a infinitive possibilities of interpretation. This is the main reason the sculptor choose ceramic as medium since it allows for a quick and fresh approach to the vital elements that compose a face: eyes, nose and mouth.

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.
