Ervinck studied old anatomy books and bone consistency, designing “EDHOLP,” in the same way that Henry Moore examined the chicken bones found in his garden. “EDHOLP” is a sculpture, a relic from the past and the future. Its curved top, hollows and satures, as well as its colour, are visual indicators of it being a skull. The lower part, however, is complex and unrecognisable, either mutant or alien.

“EDHOLP” shows the artist pushing the limits of what is “real.” Fascinated by future possibilities of bioprinting, a new technology used to print organs and bone replicas, Ervinck suggest this 3D printed object to be as authentic as the bones it is based on.
