Moths & Man is a site-specific project created for the exhibition in Gowanus Ballroom, exhibition space created in a former cannery. The installation consists of several components made in different techniques. Most of the materials for the project were gathered on the streets of Brooklyn, they are mostly abandoned clothes, notes, and newspaper clippings. Found fragments I embedded in polyester resin and epoxy. With thread obtained from rip clothes I compose aesthetic images. The installation consist also old photos in which I made an intervention, puncture them to create geometric patterns. Burned drawings (pyrography) of various species of moths are also a part of the composition. I was trying to assemble components in a way they create a new quality. Give them new value and meaning, re-tell stories. Moth and man project is on process of transformation and assigning new meaning.
