The pink sculptures oscillate between primordial and minimalistic, while adopting traditions of minimalism and modernist abstraction. Maintaining the kinetic act and physicality that has long defined her artistic oeuvre, from the earlier “rotating volume” sculptures to large-scale, site specific installations, Storch continues her investigation of the physical and spherical pieces and the phenomenological experience that is created through the sculpted object. Building upon the heavily, male dominated tradition of Minimalism, Storch’s universe is less dominant, more fragile and hyper-feminine and confronts our bodily experiences. Her works evoke memories of physical encounters often found to recall physically or psychologically awkwardness such as sexuality, hesitation, nakedness or exposure. Dealing with these experiences, the sculptures carry a performative act which occurred the first time during the artistic creation and secondly in their encounter with its audience.
