The oval shape is a new theme in Barbara Houwers’ work. “Ovum” crosses her path as a logical abstraction from earlier work. In addition, the oval as the starting form is also a choice: Symbolic for a (new) beginning as a sculptor. An experimental phase begins when Houwers is invited to test a digital sculptor’s program. She developed a series of new work in this digital way. Designs that were then executed in 3D print and exhibited in the gallery and garden of Hazart. This first 3D print object in concrete is a collaboration with Bruil beton.
