snake skin, iron, 45x31x2,5cm
The work consists of a metal frame in the form of an e-mail icon, lined with snakeskin. The snake is for me one of the most tangible evocations of the alien as a threat, and more broadly an element whose symbolic significance interests me - from biblical tradition to mythology and the eternal return. Mail is a message formalized not as verbal content, but as a mere perception of threat, at once indefinite and fatal.
