The artwork by Judith Hopf consists of an open hand with clenched fingers and a foot. These elements, placed on opposite sides of a park’s path, dialogue each other and with the visitor who, placing himself between them, becomes a significant factor in the relationship between two extremes, in this case hand and foot.

The works were made in situ using oversized bricks (double the standard) following a typical feature of Hopf’s artistic language based on the reinterpretation of traditional and everyday elements, such as bricks.
