Claim Against Alienation

Claim Against Alienation

description

The memory disconnection between nature and humans has been going since the Agricola revolution, where humans were no longer slaves of natural conditions to survive, forging the great acceleration of the past 50 years. As a consequence humans have been overwhelmed by progress and becoming a liability of the concept itself. This Sculpture addresses the concept of symbiosis between humans and nature. Using my own strength to carve this found oak wood, the marks of the chisel convey- emotion, tiredness, excitement and confusion. The sculpture gives more of myself, of the individual, as there is more to the individual than being consider a liability of society. There is more to be said about traditional ways of work. There is more to be given to the sculpture.
