Silicon/Jesmonite

Silicon allows hyper-real depictions of human bodies. Humm uses hyper-real sculptures to ask himself fundamental questions about ‘Being and Time’. To that end he is moving his subject out of a normal setting and comfort zone. For example, he is showing a hyper-real copy of his head, including glass eyes with real hair in a large sand timer which is slowly disappearing under the sand – each grain of sand representing one second of a man’s life. He also sculpts after another Michelangelo painting from the Sistine Chapel “The last judgement”, Bartholomews’ skin which Bartholomew holds in his hand, facing God – the depicted face reminding one funnily enough of Michelangelo himself and when illuminated leaves one with an uneasy spookiness.
