Under the Walnut Tree




Flowing threads drip onto the floor, blackened plastic forms encrusted bubbles, and the white architecture collapses in on itself. "Under the Walnut Tree" is a series of burnt and melted Monobloc chairs. The once functional object and symbol of modern mass production, found on exotic beaches and small balconies on the tenth floor alike, undergoes a transformation. The twisted and crooked sculptures tell a story of leisure, transience, destruction, and human influence. Heat remains a passive element in this work.
