Mankind Garbage n. 2 (Scempiaggini dell’uomo)

profile pictureMARINA PROFUMO

This sculpture reproduces a piece of tree, but it is not meant to be the true reproduction of a real tree, in effect the trunk and the branches are square. This absurd tree is made of concrete: it is easy to see and understand it is. It is a man-made manufacture and it has to be seen as such.It is a fake and it has to be seen as such.It is a ruined object. When we look at this piece of strange tree, it is as if we were already living in the future and watched a find of the past, the vestige of an age when man wanted to take the place of nature causing intolerable delusion.This work is entirely made of concrete and iron painted in varnish blotches.The iron structure is visible because of some cracks and holes in the concrete.
