Guards (1):

Two connected light, gentle, but protective figures. Granite or concrete, metal, oak.

Guards (2):

Two light sitting forms. Family, forebears, stability. Concrete, oak.

Guards (3):

Two connected boulders with polished hollows (back rests) in which one can curl up in warm weather as if you were in your mother’s lap. Connection (bench) as a fine, light line or string.

In all of the sketches, I am concerned with security, power and gentleness, basic values, peace of mind and light.

Possible bench location – Great Cemetery, cemetery park. The territory has survived several robbery waves and conceptual reorganization. People play sports there, relax and take kids and dogs for walks there, but this territory is at once both captivating and terrifying.
