Ambiguous - Forasteras 2006 - Ongoing

Description: Approx 6,100,000 Radiata Pine/Pinus Radiata's pine needles, natural voile, bronze, pen & ink on Arches paper; dimensions variable; Cube 37 Concept Statement: Ambiguous marked a turning point in Avila's career. The work addresses the concept of multiplicity and belonging throughout the study of plants' anatomy at a cellular and external level. Consisting in approx. 6,100,000 interlocked pine needles, the work investigates the links between the individual and the group; the ties that bind us together. Being from an introduced species and leaning on each other, the 6,100,000 Radiata Pine/Pinus Radiata fallen pine needles function as a metaphor of the concept of immigration, and explore the complexities of our human identity. 2006 Project supported by the Frankston City Council 2006 - Ongoing
