Rescue Mission 216

Taking as a starting point the environmental crisis and the damaged ecological system, this work addresses acts of partial reparation. 

Rescue Mission 216 represents an attempt at healing and putting together by using the language of the surgery. An object from our everyday life, an orange, has been through the process of cutting and stitching together aiming to bring in back to its ‘healthy’ condition. The final work becomes evidence of the impossibility to ‘cure’ once damaged object by transforming and reconstructing it. Hope comes hand in hand with devastation. Although once harmed, a living organism could be treated, only partial healing could be possible. The memory will always remain, silently living in the corner of our minds, while the scars remind us of the past.
