• tent art sculpture crocodile

Tent. Material: textiles, plaster, metal, synthetic material, wood. Dim: 1260x1150x1700 mm 2x and 310x240x1200 mm.
This work symbolizes the interconnectedness of humanity with nature, and our human nature to try to control and shape the things around us and the structure of nature itself. It is an organic living entity, but also an artificial, human creation. The red branch structures symbolize growth, but are also reminiscent of a vein system, streams of life. The crocodiles in the guy lines symbolize the struggle and danger in nature, but also evolution, freedom. They pull the tent taut, provide the tension that holds the tent upright.
