Research

My research focuses on nineteenth century (French) sculpture. In case studies, I explore the possibilities of methods which use spatial metafors. For instance, "centre and periphery" is such a spatial notion. This could be useful in structuring the shifts in interpretation.
The project eventually focuses on judgment mechanisms in the critique on sculpture. Case studies include the Femme Piquée par un serpent by Auguste Clésinger; the Animaliers; the Gorilla sculptures by Immanuel Frémiet.
