Johan Tahon, polyester, 2003

The sculptures by the Belgian sculptor Johan Tahon are like an expression of an all-embracing silence. A constant search within himself leaves visible traces and makes his work very personal. The charge of his expressions, full of emotion and thought, crosses the boundaries of the unknown. Tahon’s work represents mankind as a thinking creature, seeking reason and the perspective of his existence.

‘Self-self’ is a paragon of existential awareness and emotional capacity. The double-headed represents the mental connection with oneself and with the outside world, with the blue symbolizing stability and wisdom. The kiss represents the intimate intertwining of two figures that merge into one physical and psychic totality.
