In the series “Porcelain Figurines“, the German photographer Martin Klimas – specializing in high speed photography – porcelain statuettes depicts the exact moment, touching the ground, fall apart. Thanks to a sound trigger, a sound-activated device that releases the shutter the impact with the floor, after a flight in free fall from a height of three meters. The result is surprising: shattering, statuettes kitsch seem to lose their static and animated, giving rise to an unexpected gesture that the human eye, alone, would not have been able to grasp. Become – as defined by the same Klimas – “temporary sculptures.”
