Project Description

In Mundus Admirabilis, vinyl is incorporated with screenprinting on porcelain and embroidery on fabric. The installation invokes an allusion to the mythology of biblical plagues, however, instead of locusts, hail, or pestilence, she suggests the existence of plagues in our own time are the images that contaminate our everyday existence: crime and violence, degradation of the environment, corruption, and other ills that invade our lives and psyche.
