Anzhelika Gonchar: Work from the series “Body destruction 1”
2019; sculpture, plaster bandage, varnish; real size
The project is a reflection on the topic of death, an attempt to show it through a woman’s body, beautiful and fragile, very vulnerable, and not eternal. It’s a chance to think about life and the fact that it flies by unnoticed, about how we gradually disappear.
The project is an investigation of the death topic and an attempt to visualize it, all sculptures are made from plaster bandage, which symbolize the fragility of human body. These moulds are made from my body with no outside help and that’s why it is an attempt to let the death topic path through me, understand it and feel its nearing.
technique: sculpture, plaster bandage, varnish
The project was created in the year 2019.
