Jeroen Henneman
location Amsterdam
function sculpture
contributed by dirkverwoerd

Henneman calls it a 'standing illustration', the carrier of this presentation is not paper, but air. 'It has truly been an invention', states Henneman. He remembers exactly how the design came to realisation. From iron wire he made the word 'sculpture' and put it on a socle. Then he realised that the image of the word got more volume if he interrupted a line. The brains of the beholder will complete the image, as if the missing parts of the lines lie behind the sculpture. Henneman discovered the theme of The Kiss by coincidence in Mexico, 1972. 'One day I found a soldering iron. They also sold some kind of silverthread. I made a spiderweb of silverthread between two stalks and then I noticed the theme'. Henneman constructed within that web two threads that he twisted in a way that they formed the profile of a kissing couple.  The constructors and the artist received the 'Staalprijs' (Steelprice) for this work in 1983.
