250x magnification presents a laboratory diamond that was made from my
DNA and over 300 kg of my utylised works. The second diamond (of the
same origin) was implanted in my tooth (Diptych, 2018). This photographic object is part of the project in which I deformed the figure of a "sentimental gem”.
The works subjected to utilisation were created in the years 2013-2017 in the "bitumen" technique (a proprietary mix of bituminous masses, glues and silicones for constructing objects). These works for years constituted the core of my artistic activity. A total of 39 objects were crushed using an ECOTECHNICA S4800P scrap metal packaging machine, the compressed ruin was used by me for further work. Then a fragment along with my hair strand was sent to the laboratory. Two twin laboratory diamonds were created - one of them was framed and placed in my tooth, the other was photographed under a microscope. I am interested in understanding destruction as a tool for deconstructing and interpreting form and meaning.
