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.
hydrolyzed collagen, air bubbles and very small, almost invisibles organic elements such as hair, nails, fragments of fish bones, small animal bones
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.
