For GENESRA Nick Ervinck took a closer look at the traditional trophy. The lower part of the sculpture refers to this classic trophy and is made in a very traditional material; oak. The upper part is 3D printed. For this part the artist was inspired by art nouveau. In that sense the trophy fits perfect in the tradition of the focus on applied art at the end of the 19th century. Ordinary daily objects were designed as sculptures to fit in the architecture of the houses and the artworks. The form of a traditional also remains but by perforating the sculpture, it loses all functionality.
