Ossip produced the original work “Grazie” in 2006. For this edition of Mobi-Movi, material has been used which is highly similar to the original - foam, plywood, and iron wire. The image of the ballerina has been edited by hand to approximate the character of the original as far as possible.
“Grazie” has become an elegant serene mobile. A slight touch or a breath of wind makes her begin to dance. A great ballerina from long ago forever dancing in her pointe shoes, captured in her own image.
Joost Swarte made this design especially for Mobi-Movi. It is a typical "Joost Swarte figure" we know from his illustrations. The wind or touch changes the mood: happy or melancholy.
This can be seen not only in the object itself but also in the shadow it projects on the wall. The refined cutouts in the material and the play of the light produce a special effect.
