Future Bestiary by Gilles Cenazandotti

Words

Inspired by the sheer mass of debris and objects floating in the ocean, artist Gilles Cenazandotti turns plastic trash that the sea has washed ashore into beautiful sculptures.

Lighters, flip-flops, tubes of sunscreen and all the products of our throwaway culture are transformed into recycled waste animals. Talking about his work, Cenazandotti states: “Impressed by everything that the Sea, in turn, rejects and transforms, on the beaches I harvest the products derived from petroleum and its industry. The choice of animals that are part of the endangered species completes this process. In covering these animals with a new skin harvested from the banks of the Sea, I hope to draw attention to this possible metamorphosis – to create a trompe l’oeil of a modified reality.”
