The variation of the natural material led to this triptych, the three sculptures undergo different treatments and materiality of the wood, dismantled and reassembled by metal rods. Through three different nuances, the work explores the conflictual relationship between human and nature, the traces of two forces, going through each other.
Did nature cease to be wild and untameable through the human mind becoming simply some natural surrogate in our cities? The sculptures are dealing with such issues through three different stages. From the spiritual, the memory, and an intangible crystallization of nature with transparent resin bits, to a snatched nature, an empty shell carcass, a fragile residue of a past body enveloped with bark fragments, and finally, through a full and heavy entity with the entire pieces of wood.
