At first “breekijzer” by Tim Breukers & Niek Peters appears to be an old, rusty crowbar, but on closer look it turns out to be made of ceramic.
This immediately disqualifies the object for it’s supposed purpose.

The idea for this work originated from a story where internees modelled a crowbar during a clay workshop in prison. Tim Breukers & Niek Peters developed “breekijzer” in 2019 during a second stay at the European Ceramic Work Center in Oistewijk; an internationally oriented post-graduate institute for ceramics.

“Breekijzer” comes in a wooden box, which can be used as a console or frame to display the work.
crowbar: 80 x 16 x 3 cm
box: 92 x 24 x 16 cm

Numbered edition of 600.
