For the group exhibition 'A matter of time and space' in W139 in Amsterdam, I decided to set myself the objective of the impossible; the building of an Equestrian Statue. The epitome of crafty perfection, glorification and ego, both of the maker and of the portrayed. In this case I am both, turning the sculpture into a monument for itís own failure. Despite knowing beforehand that I would not succeed, making this sculpture was a humbling experience that I needed to learn to let go.
