metamorphosen (metamorphosis) I

umbrella, wire

metamorphosen (metamorphosis) is a series of sculptures using umbrellas and wires as source material. Both material are found. The umbrellas were picked up in the urban landscape; Damaged by weather conditions against which they were promised to offer shelter.

The collected objects are unveiled from the torn fabric and reduced to their post-functional skeletons. The shape caused by the damage is the vantage point for the development of each sculpture/creature. As these mechanical objects lost their functionality, the comfort of shelter, they transformed into organic forms.The name of each sculpture references the binominal nomenclature that is used in biological classification.
