Dark Passenger is a work in progress. It is the only sculpture by Erik Wuthrich which is not abstract. He used a mirror while shaping the figure, like a self portrait. The skin is covered with leather – animal skin – which used to be the couch of his parents. It interests him to re-use materials, because of the personal stories behind it, and the traces left by predecessors. The posture and position of the figure and the dark colour of the surface might suggest a psychological struggle, hence the title Dark Passenger, taken from the television series Dexter.
