Dancing with Damocles – by Mike Helbing
1999 / Welded stainless steel
Location: Calvary Memorial Church [931 Lake Street]
The sculptures of Helbing are assemblages of found objects, mostly made of stainless steel. This readymade sculpture reuses materials to give them a new meaning. Humble objects collected from everyday life are rearranged in a new, monumental form. His sculptures are influenced by a range of natural and scientific forms that echo the diverse interests of the artist.
