Pillars of Home, Nr. 57, Csilla Klenyánszki

One hundred - 30 minute long - balancing sculptures by Csilla Klenyánszki made during her Artist Residency in Motherhood, a free, open source residency project initiated by the artist Lenka Clayton. Currently there are 203 Artists-in-Residence-in-Motherhood in 25 countries and on six continents. Csilla Klenyánszki's residency takes place in Amsterdam. 

"The floor-to-ceiling constructions relay on their own inner stability while being framed only by the floor and the ceiling. The in situ installations are being made during my son’s naps, when our home becomes a studio for no more than a half an hour. The colorful hand-built pillars vary in size and complexity, depending on their territory. As the objects are being piled up, they become a coherent entity, but their delicate arrangement and balancing structure makes them vulnerable as they can be destroyed at any moment. Not only the existence of the image is in danger if the installation collapses,  but the noise of the fallen objects might awaken the sleeping baby, which ends the studio session. The nature of the project allows no self-correction, thus the final image might be imperfect."
