“Get away you false demon” is a unique edition of six sculptures. The work consists of a small base with a rotating metal element on top. This is a jewelry stand with a silver necklace hanging on it. An amulet hangs on the necklace and can actually be worn. This edition plays with the different meanings that cultural gestures can have. The hand that hangs on the necklace has the thumb between the index and middle fingers. In Mediterranean countries this is seen as an obscene gesture and it is precisely for this reason that it is worn as a lucky charm. In addition, this gesture also refers to an innocent children’s game. The various references come together in an alienating entity with a functional character.
