Prometheus Delivered
marble, plastic tubes, stainless steel tub, europallet, scissor lift table, 280 x 145 x 85 cm
exhibition view PROMETHEUS DELIVERED, Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin 2017

The marble sculpture PROMETHEUS DELIVERED - a replica of Prometheus Bound by Nicolas Sébastien Adam (1762) - is slowly decomposed by chemolithoautotrophic bacteria. The biomass of the organisms is the source of energy for human liver cells, which cause the organic sculpture OCTOPLASMA to grow. Inorganic stone turns into organic meat.
