Syndrome consists of a metal tube that is disconnected at its ends and twisted on itself. Evoking an organic body, the proposal seeks to go beyond the implicit reference to a pipeline that has been blocked by being tied into a knot. Its structure is far more complex: the knots are intertwined and thus transform a sombre news item into an introspective and disturbing form that provides no answers. The form recalls the generous curves of the Venus of Willendorf. The contortions of the tube causes a swelling that evokes a living organ; something like a distant reminder of the organic origins of petroleum.
