What happens when you lose your comfort zone?
This series focuses on regaining the space where one feels safe or at ease while exploring the intimacy and tenderness within. It consists a miniture hot spring and growing plants on a found object from the street.
Installation setup for the gallery opening in NYU Berlin. Photos by myself and Maria Kotylevskaja.
Scuptlure 1 — Bathing
Bathing explores the personal moments when the artist feels most connected to his fleeing identity without any physical or emotional shields. The sculpture draws a parallel between the changing states of the water and the artist’s ever-changing states of identities.
The audience is encouraged to feel the hot water and draw on the glass, immersing themselves with the miniature safe space.
Molding & Casting
Scuptlure 2 — Aim in LifeAim in Life is a personal reflection on the struggle between approaches to living. The artist reflects on the frustration of balancing emotional and physical needs with solutions. Instead, the artist tries gardening his life with little love every day. The sculpture is a manifestation of experimenting the alternative mindsets to living and reimagining ways of caring.
The audience is encouraged to touch the plants and feels the mist, feeling the living plants brush along with their hands.
