Dan Stockholm / By Hand
For Dan Stockholm‘s By Hand installation he created a series of negative plaster casts of his cupped hands into red clay bricks that reveal different amounts of his palms. The project is a follow up to a project from 2013 that followed his father’s death…
Fascinated by places and architecture with an innate historical significance and narrative tension, Dan Stockholm practises a ‘creative archaeology’. The act of touching has become a fundamental part of his working process where for example, in 2013 days after his father’s death he methodically touched his father’s entire house centimetre by centimetre and subsequently made and adapted plaster casts of his handprints for ongoing sculptures and installations.
