Wannes Goetschalckx’s ToothpickApril 8, 2012
I had an idea. I will make a toothpick. From a tree, by hand.
* Artist’s statement (letter of intention, January 2011).
The starting point for Wannes Goetschalckx’s Toothpick Project, was an immense poplar installed at the Casino Luxembourg, which was to be carved with his own hands into one toothpick. From September until December 20011, he has been harnessed to this colossal task.
