object made of cardboard boxes of clothes found in garbage cans in streets of Florence, adhesive tape, height approx. 220cm Italy, 2018
Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Nike, Adidas, Acne, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Miu Miu, Dior, Hermès Paris..., is a sculpture originated during my stay in Florence, Italy, a two-month residency in Villa Romana, when I biked around the city and browsed through boutique and fashion show thrash.
I would collect empty boxes of luxury brands, take them home and develop a sculpture inspired by gigantic marble monuments I saw in urban space. And so, the sculpture emerged from a performative act of collecting discarded boxes over time across the topography of Florence.
Some of references for the concept and form of the sculpture. Shapes on the basis of which parts of the sculpture were created, public space, museum exhibits, city monuments, quarry.
Collages made of remains of cardboards, paper, tape ca. 50x70 cm each, 2020/2021
