Art is designed to expand the boundaries of our thinking. It challenges stereotypes, makes us reconsider our beliefs. In art, something that we could not even think about becomes possible.
Sculpture just allows the artist to translate the idea so conceived to make the viewer doubt what he knew before. The sculptor can create things that challenge the laws of physics, puzzle the viewer and cause a lot of questions.
