Bio-art sculptures made of moss, wood, soil, algus and glass. Research of the plant creature, started in 2016 and developed with Cultivamos Cultura Residency from 2017 to 2020 in Portugal.
The living is a fragile phenomenon. Considering that the technical difficulty of bio-Arte is to deal with works that have great fragility, the biggest challenges of this practice is to succeed in creating independent micro-ecosystems and landscape that could survive in sealed glass capsules for ever, being an ecosystem. Inspired by the tradition of Japanese banzai and micro-gardens, the “Kamis” series combines biology and sculpture to support a self-fulfilling political message: “Life is art”.
Here the plant or the organism is the artist strictly speaking like the performer of the sculpture .. "Tomorrow, all the plants will be artists! The forest is art."
Kamis are japanese creatures from the forest. More than an hommage to the knowlegde of Bonzai techniques, it is aslo to embodied a creature that is forest-spirit-humam as the artwork is. Using this japanese name to discribe the magic of life, a creature made of plants and spirits.
Relationship between life and death is a caractéristique of the écosystem of a forest from a biological point of you. Pedagogy of the art work is not fragility of life, it is the force of it , its capacity to resist and to adapt.
