Mirko Bratuša, “Heaters for Hot Feelings” (detail), 2011.
Glazed ceramics, electric heaters, installed heat pumps, electric wiring and water hoses.*
Slovenian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale
Mirko Bratuša’s sculpture installation Heaters for Hot Feelings is composed of eight tactile, anthropo- and biomorphic pieces each of which about 2 m (7 ft.) high. Hidden electrical fittings heat, humidify and cool the fired clay sculptures. The heat generated by the cooling of the first sculptures will be used to heat the others. A network of connections is set up as a system of artificial bodies, which indicate their mutual dependence.
