Centaur I

2021

Media: soft sculpture

The expansion of green areas shapes dynamic boundaries between natural landscapes and urban territories. Within urban settings, my attention is particularly drawn to road barriers, which dictate the movement of bodies and delineate distinct zones. 

 

My exploration leads to a critical thinking of the lasting influence of the geographical and historical contexts of social disciplinary power on those boundaries.

 

I integrate this abstraction of plant growth into the design of road barriers. My intention is to artistically materialize the development of physical boundaries and their intricate relationship with societal discipline, body politics, and nature.

 

I presented it indoors during the pandemic and also introduced in public space outdoors then, to make people watch and perceive the status and the way of the existence of sort of boundaries and conflicts from this work and its surroundings. I intend to think about, practise, question and discuss about the formation of the physical boundaries and its  relationships with discipline power, body politics and nature.
