untitled (Two Sentinels) – 4/5, 5/4
2007 – 2008
Enamel on mild steel
100 x 100 x 50 cm

The steel sculptures Untitled (Two Sentinels) represent the paired digits 4/5 and 5/4. Whereas in the past, Papadimas has exhibited complete series of paired digits (0/9, 1/8, 2/7, 3/6, 4/5, 5/4, 6/3, 7/2, 8/1, 9/0), in this instance he has deliberately isolated the central pairing from its serial context. Shifting our gaze from the macro to the micro, the relationship between and interdependency of the two digits is rendered more visible.
