  Through Metamorphoses I invite the viewer to meditation on the human existence. Each of the seven cases is an organic habitat, like a giant cocoon in which are developing other organisms, a real environment that protect and isolates, resulting in alienation and resignation of each element included. Live items are the subject of irreversible processes of decomposition, crystallization and dehumanization. The bottom of each work is dominated by the organic structure, structure/symbol( the smoke and the spider web). Smoke is purifying and the spider, as a symbol, means unconscious, laborious and shy, violent and regressive. The human figure is present in these spaces, closed and isolated, condemned to solitude and death. Feelings are expressed through the body gesture. I believe that there are three phases of human nature in solitude and transformation. The first one, the negation, the second one, resignation, the last one , purifying. I called my installation Metamorphoses- Lethe, because that involves all the change that means nature. Lethe means to bring forgetfulness. Lethe was in Greek mythology a goddess and personification of oblivion( forgetfulness). From her came also the name of one of the seven underworld rivers, that have the gift to make the dead persons to forgot the earthly life.
