The work 181 kilometres, commissioned especially for the Saatchi Gallery, bears testament to the intensely physical activity of sculptures. Anderson walked 181 kilometres to ’spun’ an entire sphere with copper thread that took days to create, allowing the artist to enter an almost Zen like meditative state of concentration and choreography. As the artist herself explains: The first works that I’ve done involved performances. Since the beginning I’ve experienced my body through movement and today the wire is for me an extension of it. The sculpture Bound was conceived in 2011 alongside is a body of work made for the Freud Museum in London, and references a game Sigmund would play with his young grandson in order to calm what Freud saw as his anxiety of his mothers’ absence. As part of the game he would throw a bobbin and bring it back over the edge of the cot with a string, (Fort – gone, Da – there in German).
