Make it yourself: Flexibility
A soft block of clay, still fresh in its packing and in wet form, waiting for his future designer. The clay with packaging and label longs to be unpacked or, if unpacked, to pick up and start kneading.The display of elasticity in a "fossilized" form allows us to dream away into a world of fantasy where reality makes way for a new world where absurdity knows no boundaries. The future ideal of the piece of clay by the viewer or the future owner is itself challenged by giving it form, content or life.

About the 'Make it yourself' series
'Make it yourself’ deals with the concept of time. This concept allows us to empathize with the images in a personal way. It plays with the idea of ​​the dying, but also the narrative in history.To escape time we can only imagine the timelessness. We cannot change or manipulate time, but just imagine it. In the ‘Make it yourself’ series the sculptures have been given an idea, or a given time. The more than 90 sculptures are all made of natural stone. Some are painted or silkscreened as well. Kim De Ruysscher works with traditional sculptural techniques and traditional material and connects these historical aspects with contemporary spirit. So he materializes a period and inertia. The presented sculptures from ‘Make it yourself’ carry a reticence to entail the time in which the future fulfillment of a work has not yet been determined, but in which the past is already over. Thus we see a drawing block, building blocks, a bag of plaster, wood blocks, paint tubes or paper. Apart from the past and present the works of 'Make it yourself' also focuses on the future.
