I'll Never Lie To You Again, I Promise, 2009


Orly Genger's labor-intensive sculptures are something to be in awe of. She brushes aside the modest dimensions, favouring force and vigour. I'll Never Lie to you Again, I Promise, is an enduring performance piece involving tremendous physical effort. She pairs a tedious process with a challenge; a comment on the large, minimalist-type sculptures we are familiar with, before breaking them down in order to understand and to learn how they became to exist.
