Vivarium/I Remember is both a painting and a sculpture.
Here, two strong symbols of primitive, earthly life are brought together as a sacred relic and a bygone era. The couple’s walk and the lush tropical forest are put under a bell, like specimen to be preserved.
This piece symbolizes a universal moment for human beings bound by love and the precious memory of intact nature at the level of our collective consciousness.
Its protective casing reveals a paradox between the idealistic notion of a possible harmony and symbiosis between humans and nature, and humankind viewing itself as an endangered species, yet taking on the role of dominant predators, ultimately leading to its own downfall.
