West seeks interaction between the object and the audience. He invites the visitors to touch, hold, carry or sit on his playful sculptures. These so-called passtücke consist of discarded objects that the artist has encased in plaster, papier-mâché or plastic, whereby they become nondescript organic forms – and the visitors can themselves recognize all sorts of forms in them. Accordingly, the review of the exhibition in the NRC Handelsblad has the headline: ‘Walking with an apple fritter’. Some objects are actually wearable, as clothing or jewellery, while others are very awkward to lift, so the carrier has to adjust his or her movements. West therefore describes these sculptures as ‘materialized thoughts or neuroses’.
