About the Artwork
Tatiana Wolska creates her sculptures using recycled plastic bottles. By cutting, perforating and thermo-welding them, she achieves sprawling, modular biomorphic forms. The transparency of the plastic adds visual effects of light and shadow. First shown at Palais de Tokyo in 2015, the sculpture occupied space in a monumental installation.
Seductive in their vivid red colour and intriguing in their forms, the sculptures appear aerial or dense and voluminous. By being light-weight however, these arresting forms can be placed within the environment in ways defying the laws of gravity. They can evoke floating islands of plastic waste or hold a strong poetic charge, appearing to be mysteriously suspended from the buildings or trees as if infecting the environment.
