“Crystalised” is an installation of 100 cone-shaped textile sculptures ranging from 1 to 50 cm in height, arranged over cement islands installed on the gallery floor. All objects are handmade from melted synthetic fabric, that once hardened, hold their shape without the use of stitches or glue, revealing a hidden plastic essence of polyester. Every piece is then hand painted with pigments.

"My artificial landscape shows a connection between the natural and the industrial, drawing inspiration from prehistoric caves and their present-day state of pollution. Polyester is notorious for releasing microplastics, and these particles infiltrate even the most remote places: oceans, coral reefs, caves, stalagmites, and even human organs. Plastic becomes a  new part of the organic world. It is a time of a transition into a novel, mutated trans-plastic ecosystem, where the synthetic intertwines with the natural".
