These sculptures represent real and imaginary forms of symbiosis found in nature: intimate relationships between organisms of different species. They are composite images that recall an imaginary bestiary or herbarium that feeds on medieval and baroque iconography, folk tales and visions. The starting point is a fabric and stucco version, which in some cases is then cast in concrete: a humble, porous material that, placed outdoors, will soon become a new kind of “botanical laboratory.”
