One More Time floats from the page as a series of delightful freehand sketches. They are in fact mantel clocks handmade in metal wire. But this light whimsical blend of nostalgia and poetry is more than a mere brush stroke. Concept, material, structure and technique sit in perfect balance beneath the surface of Kiki van Eijk’s work.
The One More Time range is handmade in metal wire in 14 different materials and finishes. Each clock has exactly the same shape, but a totally different appearance because of its finish. It tells a story about time; how we look at objects, judge them, how we feel about them and how our vision towards them changes within time.
An object that shows only the skeleton of what it could be, yet representing a function in full state. The objects exist between fiction and reality, it’s ultra transparent and seems to float in space by almost getting absorbed by its surroundings. In this work the construction looks like a tiny ink drawing. The added ceramic part determines a function: a clock.
One More Time finishes: Brass, Brass sandblasted, Copper, Copper sandblasted, Copper oxidized, Copper sulphur, Copper sandblasted nickel plated, Copper 24K gold plated, Copper nickel plated, Copper oxidized copper plated, Aluminium, Aluminium blue anodized, Aluminium red anodized, Aluminium black anodized.
Dimensions: 34 x 14 x 41 cm
