Real estate is a series of sculptures which employ a circular Sisyphusian logic to address the relationship between production and fatigue. Headrests from car seats, massage chairs, office chairs and the like have been mounted into blocks of granite. They are manmade shoulders to lean on and rocks, as we find them in a plain metaphorical universe. After all, by definition of “real estate”, they are immovable properties.
