Tier- Mensch, Stärke und Verletzlichkeit oder eben Hand und Fuß.

JC Leopold’s practice aims to get to the bottom of dualisms and contradictions such as soft material and raw treatment, strength and vulnerability, above and below, inside and outside, human and non-human, hand and foot. He prefers working with found materials, especially if they show traces of usage and wear, but also utilizes contemporary materials such as foam and polystyrene in his installations and sculptures. JC Leopold’s his work deals with the futility and ephemerality of existence. Material, from which human extremities are cut out, will fall to dust in the course of time, just as human beings themselves, or the buildings that were built to protect us from the environment and danger. Knowing all this, he nevertheless tries to encounter the absurdity of the world with resilient humour.
