“My work is about our relationship with the rest of nature, explored through notions of change, the passing of time, and the transience of everything around us. For me, creating seemingly solid structures or forms from thousands of individually suspended elements has a direct relation with my experience of these forces. There is a sense of fragility and a lack of solidity that carries through all the sculptures. I feel as if they are somewhere between movement and stillness, and thus in possession of a certain energy.” – Claire Morgan

From the artist’s website:

A classical influence can be identified in most of her projects but it is taken precisely to represent modern issues, how do they affect to society nowadays and how other atemporal issues are managed today. It is the way she uses to represent how people is touched by the changing world in which we live. The attempt to grant a fresh air to the classic style is one of the essential characteristics of her work.

Peter Belyi – Danger Zone

For the past 8 years, Danger Zone, the sculpture by Peter Belyi has been in a wonderful state of deterioration.

From the project notes:

In the installation ‘Danger Zone’, the artist deliberately degrades the traditional subject of romantic ruins to the form of technical, post-industrial ruins. His chosen material is plasterboard, itself inherently disposable, intended for single use, decorative, something only for the here and now. After the exhibition such an object can only be taken to pieces and thrown away, fully reflecting the principle that lies behind contemporary architecture, an architect that foresees no re-use.

“I am inspired by working with animal imagery and aesthetic techniques that have been recycled many times through history like anthropomorphic fables or political cartoons. Like my contemporaries, I am fascinated by this process and I like to juxtapose it against the conflicts of western society today.” – Laurence Vallières
