The Modern non-Human
Sculpture

There is power in employing humour themes. Satirical means and comical aspects can be effectively delivered through engaging and intriguing subject matter. The juxtaposition of what we are acquainted to and have acknowledged all our lives, is a significant source of development in my works. In fact, many of the themes, although based on reality, are speculative in nature. In The Modern non-Human, I adopt a researcher’s POV to investigate the past happenings of species evolution that paved the current food chain and hierarchy. What makes us inherently human? What characteristics belong to animals? What happens if we reverse these effects?

Our environment shapes our behaviour and reactions. I have an interest in site-specific art, and intentionally adopted sculpture as a medium for the surroundings to complement them-through lighting, water, reflection, and decay.
