hydrolyzed collagen and air bubbles aprox. 3,28’x13,12‘ x1,64’, 2017
This sculpture was created during art residency at Carlos Amorales studio in Mexico City. I would call it a performative piece. Because of its nature, sculpture that was left outside during a rainy day, become an object of constant transformation by a nature and at the and had decomposed totally. There is no physical object le only photo documentation and a time-lapse video of the transformation and decomposition process.

project in process
I creat sculptures through the process of deconstruction and re-contextualization of used material (hydrolyzed animal collagen). I find interesting its transformation stages from animal to waste, hydrolyzed collagen (secondary product of meat production) and then from powder (collagen) to a sculpture (a new organism). Reuse of material – recycling and a metafor of life cycle.
Sculptures that I create are in fact anti sculptures. In contrary to the traditional properties related to sculpture over the centuries, my art works are fragile and will disappear eventually. I am not trying to create monuments that survive ages. I like the fact that the sculpture is never finished and is changing constantly, the performativity of the piece. I don’t think of it as a final object it is always work in progress. I enjoy the act of creation but also the fact that the object will leave no waste. It is 100% biodegradable.

epoxy resin and soil samples
This project involves a creation of artifcial stone with epoxy resin and soil samples from different parts of the world that I visit. I want to form stones of various sizes and shapes. Each stone will be unique as the content will change depending on the environment. First stone was made on the Rockaway beach NYC so it contains sand, algae, plankton and more other random things that were on the way where I was rolling the stone. Due to the amber resin color the stones looks and have similar proprieties as real amber stones which after all were made in a similar process during a million years. I’m recreating this process in just a few hours.
bones, gelatin, agar, teeth, fungus, mold, fish bones, human hairs and nails
project in process
Using a animal rests like bones, skulls, teeth, gelatin and human hairs and nails I’m creating a not-existing objects.
bacteria, mold, agar, plexiglas
Bacteria, mold and mildew cultivation on the surface of laser engraved plates. Growing organism repeats pattern burned into the plate because it grown more easily on the rough tex- ture than on a smooth plexiglas surface.
