Hoop

Front View Hoop

Hoop -  a sculpture by Annabelle Moreau proposed for the outdoor space of Nova BSE Carcavelos by the Jerónimos Martins Grand Auditorium.

 

The sculpture Hoop is based on an object of everyday life, an embroidery hoop which is made out ofwood.

It is anobject which is mostly used by women and it serves as a tool for this purpose.

Annabelle Moreau has decided to place this tool it in a different context giving it another dimension and in such doing giving it a new presence and status.

 

The sculpture made out of steel and stainless steel cables engages with the space that surrounds it.

A series of cables are stretched from the four meters diameter iron circle. The cables converge into three points allowing the vision of an extended space. The object being scaled up will allow not only the visual experience but also a whole body experience, as it will encompass its viewers into its projected vanishing points.
