THE ARGENTINIAN RELATIVES, 2013

The birds of the installation The Argentinan Relatives orginated in an contemplation about different species of bird, which I observed in the garden of my grandparents in Buenos Aires. Each bird figure embodies a certain character, which is also reflected in the choice of distinct materials. Many finds from the recyclable material container of the Academy of Fine Arts Dresden were used for the construction.
