An ‘Isla’ embodies a new, yet transformed area. Where all systems are the result of socio-ecological disaster. Those who reach the island are in fact survivors of the wreckage, be it physical, ecological or cultural. Their dysfunctional remains are the basis for the creation of islands, which are themselves the result of a process of adaptation by the exiles, of separation from civilisation with its legal system, and of phenomena such as climate catastrophe, technological overdevelopment, moral relativism, sociological and urban problems.

Concreteosis









Series of objects and photographies, 2021

Through the symbolic use of green colors of the "green screen", I refer to the progressive urbanization, destruction of green areas and thus the diminishing area of nature.

Performative photography in urban space alludes to the nature deficit complex described by Richard Louv in his book "The Last Child of the Forest". The lack of contact with nature manifests itself in greater susceptibility to stress, problems with concentration, decreased creativity, and greater susceptibility to addictions.

Concrete used in sculptural forms refers to the problems of water deficit, sand exploitation, which causes drying of rivers and decreasing biodiversity.




"UN forecasts predict that in the 21st century the share of urban population in the total population will reach the level of 66 percent. At the same time, nature on a global scale has never been so endangered as it is today."
Jan Mencwel, Betonoza
