Petra Laaper zooms in with her sculptures on the basic experience where meaning is still undecided and open to interpretation. Her work manifests as a body in space, an attribute for an action, an object to pick up, hold up and try. She shows simple shapes that are recognizable even thou you can not derive an identity from them. Personne which means somebody/nobody, gives a portrayal of her ongoing research into the body and the beauty of its movement.
