Vera icon/Self-portrait 10 is a fragmented imprint of the Caspar Berger's face, cast in the form of a round medal. On the front is a nose, a closed eye, and in particular a large area of skin. On the rim, teeth grin at us, while the reverse shows an ear. Vera Icon/Self-portrait 10 carries a range of associations: questions as to the verity of the image, the significance of an imprint versus its authenticity and, not least, the use of gold, a precious material rarely used in sculpture, compared value of an artwork to its artistic value. But not without irony, as attested by Caspar Berger’s mocking grin on the rim of the medal. This work is part of the Skin works.
