Self-portrait

If this artwork was at the beginning a self-portrait, it since evolve on its own. Like our faces evolve, the living does as well, creating the destruction of the former form.

Inspired by Giuseppe Penone’s artwork «Patata » – 1977, the mold is weakened to let the tension between those two materials (plant/mold) be.

Following the way of Mono-Ha movement by creating a continuation between the plants, the artwork and myself, my own face was used to cast the sculpture.
