HERAS — Ciro Duclos’ work is a bodily investigation of reflection, self-reflection, time and space. By using building materials he’s blurring the lines between artwork, construction and material. He is fascinated by the transparency and the reflective properties of glass. The physical experience of the viewer is crucial: one must be immersed in the work for it to be complete.
During RESET, Duclos is showing an installation made of semi-transparent glass that has a strong spatial quality. The clear construction forms an evenly balanced play of contrasts: glass panels float serenely in a metal framework or are partially submerged in water. He aims to create a ‘reset’ moment — an opportunity for viewers to become aware of themselves and the space in which they are moving.
Ciro Duclos graduated from the Fine Arts department of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague in 2015.
