The fold in the sculpture does not only reproduce the mortal body, it intensifies the mental power and elevates the figure above all. The liberation of the fold introduces another layer‚ these are the elements. Compressed, folded or wrapped, the elements expand and lengthen the world. A vast and floating world, constantly folding and unfolding‚ an enormous plateau.
– Gilles Deleuze
