Blind Adam’s work is standing in this limit between the visible and the invisible, in the line that separates the light from the darkness without graduations or shadows. There, image and object, weight and volume, shape and sensation begin to negotiate their limits in a study on the case of the unknown; because it was expressed through the creation and the development, the acceptance and the salutation, the symbolism and the illustration of the idea of holiness. The wings of the guardian angel, the cross of martyrdom, the place of worship with the familiar shape of Kaaba in Mecca, the high throne of a God that sees everything, are one part of this study. The other part consists of works that address directly the human existence, its worries and anxieties, the fear of the unknown, the fear of the return to the abyss of Kazantzakis’ «Ascetic»: the holy carpet of praying, the swirling and the ecstasy of Holy Glory and of course death with the unspecified shape that seems to suck in everything that surrounds it in a deep palpable darkness. The knots and the loops that are the main medium of this body of work are also the measures of scale and time, of the scale of the installation and the time of its creation. They are also the medium through which the solid and fluid are expressed, the absolute materiality and marginal ethereality of the sculptural practice of Blind Adam.
