Kamis. The research of the plant creature. 2015/2020

Bio-art sculptures made of moss, wood, soil, algus and glass.

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. 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. Using this japanese name to discribe the magic aspect of the wild(wo)man. That it could also be a creature made of plants.
