“Oddities”

 

The sculptures in the “Cabinet of Curiosities” all relate because they have the quality of being odd, a strangeness or eccentricity.

Oddities of the natural world

These sculptures relate to shapes found in nature, but break traditions as they evolve into objects with personalities of their own.

The serie “Cabinet of Curiosities” deals with the constant battle of life one finds when truly looking beneath the obvious.

Cabinets of curiosities, also known as ‘wonder rooms’, were small collections of extraordinary objects which attempted to categorise and tell stories about the wonders and oddities of the natural world.

Mother Nature is full of surprises. From a landscape of bubbling, gurgling mud volcanoes to swirling, blue walls hidden in a cave, the world is dotted with spectacular, natural oddities that may seem too strange to be real.

With my sculptures I entangled my fantasy with reality. Some of the sculptures look real, but are they?
