Laundry Baskets I, 2019

This group of sculptures recreates household plastic baskets in large scale. On one side, they appear as sensual and imaginative constructions for the body to hide, curl or rest; on the other, half broken and partially repaired, they stand as architectural hybrids worthy of apocalyptic times. Betraying their promise of organization and tidiness, and by extension, our intimate notions of safety and protection, they embody future ruins. The works want to consider the unsustainable nature of our material culture and habits and its implications for living, while undertaking the fact that care implies repair, security assumes precariousness, construction announces destruction, and value refuse.
