Title:
VENUS MMXVIII

Author:
Aleksandra Lawicka Cuper Alain Lapicore

Description:
The installation refers to „The Birth of Venus” of S. Botticelli. In the background you can see „aquarium” (2m of height, 3m of length, 0.25m of width) made of glass container filled with slate blue liquid. There are colorful plastic bags floating in the fluid. In the left bottom corner there is a pump moving the content of the aquarium. In the foreground from a shell-like form (made from recovered plastic waste, mostly bags) emerges Aphrodite made of translucent plexiglas or resin. The sculpture has a modern shape. The foundation (3m of length, 1.5m of width and from 0.3m to 0.5m of height) consists of gray pellets with sea anemones and corals printed on 3D printer from colorful plastic. I suggest to sell these small sea organisms to visitors and to donate money to the organisations that are fighting for purity of the sea and oceans. Kinetic and acoustic effects (including whale song and the sound of waves) are generated by presence and motion sensors.
