These two sculptures are variations of Neagu’s ‘tactile’ and ‘palpable’ objects. Both combine textured surfaces with more elaborate imagery and religious symbols. On the top of Tactile Object is a cross made from strips of leather. Palpable Object contains cut-outs in the shape of human figures, giving the box the feeling of a coffin or reliquary.

Religious references appear in several of Neagu’s works. In the video of Cake Man Event, also shown in this gallery, the ritualised eating of waffles recalls the Christian Holy Communion.
