During my participation in the Abidjan Green Arts Biennale 2019 (click the link to read more about the event) I have created four site-specific and site-responsive works, with only materials found on site and natural, biodegradable paint. All works are ephemeral and intended to eventually be dissolved into nature again.

The Seven Gates of the Rainsnake
Material: Bamboo, sisal rope, branches, talcum powder and sunflower oil

Circle of Life
A big nest created out of branches, placed between a small, young tree at the entrance, a tall, strong tree on the left side and an old, dead tree on the right side.
Site-responsive artwork, dead tree over a dry riverbed, clay from close-by river.
Magical Rain Collector
Bamboo and seeds from local tree sourced from the forest.
