A group of four abstract objects which are made from industrial copper tubing and discarded plastic strips. The copper will change colour with time, as a nod to the inspiration behind the series; the constant change that has become a way of life, in contemporary society. The copper tubes have been bent in spontaneous ways, to give an impression of organic growth and each piece is pierced by colourful plastic strips, that have been collected by the artist throughout several years. Normally considered a waste material, they have here been carefully gathered with an appreciation for their different colours and hues, adding a whimsical flair to these almost creature-like pieces.
This group of objects, which function as one piece, is part of the sculpture series “Precarious Structures”, inspired by the new emerging social class the precariat. This new social structure is characterized by a constant state of uncertainty and change, something that is reflected in the materials chosen for these objects.
