Bibi Smit. Maru Mori: The heartbreaking simplicity of ordinary things
Event organised by Bibi Smit
These sculptures embrace an ode to the joy and simplicity of nature, coming fully alive and creating a new beauty. Fruits casually fallen become representations of slightly uncomfortable, clumsy and awkward, but tasty, fragments of nature. The work embodies the pleasure of seeing a tulip petal falling, still and quiet, on the table. Each piece is unique and free-blown, shaped by the artist in a controlled movement. In a moment of tension and distortion, a petal is brought once again back to life.
