From recordings of the collector's
voice,the resulting sound waves
are transformed into a sculpture
which can be suspended like
a mobile or fixed on a structure.
As the hollow tubes are caught
in the wind,the work responds,
producing its own melody.
It is the voice of the owner alone
who can unlock the gates to
reveal the rich collection within.

Ruchira Gupta performance
presentation Be Aware
- Be Aware VIDEO, 2014
BE AWARE OF SEX TRAFFICKING is an interactive sculpture which
denounces sex trafficking, a phenomenon considered inevitable but
which can be overcome.
The work consists of three stylised figures of girls, young adolescents
without arms, lifesize, in souldered wire-mesh. The three sculptures are
filled with black, brown and blond synthetic hair.
The artist will ask the audience to participate in a performance
where strands of hair will be extracted with tweezers.
These hairs, bound by ribbon are put in small bags to be kept in a wallet.
The extraction process is highly emotive: the wire sculpture empties
and one decides to fight this problem.
These many tiny singular actions will transform into a collective
barrage against sex trafficking
