Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can´t hit what the eyes can´t see
The sculpture refers to the tense situation in the world today, where increased refugees flows and terrorist attacks creates split attitudes and xenophobia. The title: "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. The hands can´t hit what the eyes can´t see.", is a quote taken from the former heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali. Ali is in addition to the skills he showed in the ring known his struggle for freedom of religion and racial justice, and was once a strong advocate of the blacks' rights in the United States. Taken out of its context, in which the quote contains a form of survival tactics, it may here also be seen as a form of powerlessness against the situation we are faced with, both in the West, but also for the countless people who are on the run today.
