humus, basalt, 74 x 35 x 15 cm, 2019
The basalt, as a specific type of lava rock, reflects the destruction and decay. Lava buries villages and people, but at the same time it is the condition for new life and opens new space to live. Some people even let themselves be buried in lava after death to merge with nature. I took this material as a starting point and the work humus was created. It is about the decay of the human body, about being slowly eaten up and becoming one with nature.
