Over the space of a month, Fischer’s Plasticine sculpture of The Kiss will transform from a recognisable motif (fractionally larger than Rodin’s first marble version) into an open- ended site of collaboration. The icon of modern sculpture will become a volatile object – able to be inscribed, pulled apart and remodelled spontaneously. The kissing figures are raised on a Plasticine pedestal onto which visitors will be able to climb, so as to become part of the sculptural group – transposed into the work of art.

It was suggested in my vising practitioner crit to go visit this exhibition after discussing wanting people to handle my sculptures and ways i was going around doing that. I was particularity interested in the way visitors were allowed to manipulate the material themselves, leaving a trace of themselves in the sculpture on how they had changed it.
