Galerie VIVID presents Metamorphism by Shahar Livne

By combining plastic fragments with minerals and placing them under heat and pressure to simulate the Earth’s geological processes, Shahar Livne’s Metamorphism investigates the nature of emerging materials at a time when plastic has become part of the planet’s stratigraphy. Alongside objects made from the resulting composite, the installation includes a video, created with artist Alan Boom, that reflects on the notion of plastic as a nonbiodegradable “hyper object” that functions outside of the cycles of life and death.
