Orange Arch is a sculpture from the serials project made by Nebil Zaman, where he made a series of sculptures & sitting objects. The project explores different materials, productions techniques and expressions.
Nebil chooses the shape of an Arch as its main subject and made several iterations of the shape. Each time a shape was conceived, a new idea emerged. In many ways this is a practice in working with limitations. Limitation can often be perceived as something negative. As if we're not free. But without limitations we are often lost. We don't have any starting point. But, if you have a set of rules that can work as limits for your explorations, you can think about the things you're interested in.
For this project, the shape and size were decided upon, so therefore the focus was mostly on the materials and production techniques. The Arch shape wound then act as a blak canvas, that you could stretch and manipulate, according to what the materials could do.
Plaster objects are made with 1.5 mm thick eskaboard (grayboard) and a mixture of plaster and wood glue. Nebil starts out by designing a digital 3d drawing then dividing the model into sections. Using a laser-cutter to cut the pieces, he assembles individual pieces together. Then builds several layers of plaster-mixture over the Eska board armature. The piece is lacquered and finished with glossy varnish.
60 x 28 x 45 cm
Considering the materials, this piece is relatively strong, but it must be handled with care. Chip offs may occur.
