Protoplasting Nature 02
There must be a hidden skeleton within. A bodily scaffolding reminiscent of nothing but an abstract, metal ribcage – an entity yet to be born. The convulsive shapes of the wire veins which become intertwined with one another creating both surprising and familiar presence. Led by a chance of a human gesture they meander through an empty space until the anatomy is carved around it. Stunned and unable to name its bizarre familiarity, one is forced to wait and observe as the metal structure becomes wrapped with a sparse weight of the natural tissue. It is only now, when the metallic fossil has emerged from the slow process of creation, one can understand its enigmatic familiarity. A frozen and reshaped memorabilia referencing17th century furniture emerges before you – constantly becoming and carrying on the memory of time, space, material and the creative act.

Marcin Rusak (born in 1987, Warsaw, Poland) is an artist and multidisciplinary designer interested in ideas of value, ephemerality and aesthetics. Specializing in storytelling, process and material investigation his work often incorporates research, object and installation as well as visual creations to explore overlooked details of our lives which recreated and re imagined are shown again in a different light. As the son and grandson of flower growers he has long been fascinated by these na tural sources of inspiration and decoration. Engaging them in his creative process began by reusing waste to investigate new decorative elements within everyday objects and led to a rich body of work ranging from research and storytelling to cultural criti cism around consumption and future scenarios.
