Fleeting Parts by Milena Naef

In Fleeting Parts, Amsterdam based artist Milena Naef creates an interaction between her own body and stone to become part of her temporary sculptures.

Milena Naef is a Dutch artist coming from a family with a sculptural history. Utilizing materials such as concrete and stone, Milena Naef creates a manifestation of the duality between body and mind. Her work is questioning accustomed structures that are inherent to herself. In her latest series called “Fleeting Parts”, the Amsterdam based artist is merging her own body with sheets of marble in order to become part of these temporary sculptures. By carving out different areas, she creates space that allows an interaction between her own body and the material. Sitting alongside with her work, Naef tries to translate characteristics of a subjective experience into the respective material. The carved marble becomes a frame for the body, which directs the viewer’s focus on certain contours of her figure. Please have a look at the images below.
