Of Orb's Core, Installation View
Commisioned by the Universitary Medical Centre Groningen for the exhibition Passage, the work Of Orb's Core is a fairytale of hope, renewal and magic. The works evolves around the head-shaped sculpture Het Rode Geheim, that Sigurdur Gudmundsson made for the new hospital entry in 1998. The sculpture itself consists of a big granite faceless head, surrounded by rocks. In the work, we find a group of beings, wandering the sky, who come together around a head that's in a critical state. Can it still end well? Where do they get the hope from?

ec hopada, ec hopadia
fiecare luna e ou mica
fiecare sfera e membrana
cerul este la margine
inima, un soare de retinut
ec hopada, ec hopada
amintiti-va de soarele inimii ...

ec hopada, ec hopadia
coaja de miez (se) cade iar,
soarele rasari, tremura
cantec de leagan, speranta
inima tematoare, moale
ec hopada, ec hopada
inmoaie-ti toata inima ...

ec hopada, ec hopadia
fiecare luna e ou mica
cu caldura si rabdare
va trosni si un mic soare
dand caldura, si speranta
ec hopada, ec hopadia
fiecare speranta un nou rasarit
