Sculptures build with tin can

DESCRIPTION


The theme of poverty led me to use the tin can as materials in art. Once this material was available in the illustration of poverty it was definitive that it would be from the tin can that the theme would evolve and become by the sculpture of the tin can a descriptive element of poverty.

I asked myself how to approach the subject. I thought I would describe poor housing and install the poor character there. A bit like in theater the author before defining the character finds in what environment it will evolve. The environment of poverty is everywhere in humanity. All the different social forms have within themselves this situation of poverty, even if sometimes it is not obvious to the eye.
You only have to enter a castle on the mountain to realize that there is the same level of human poverty as in a slum at the bottom of the city. Human poverty is not just a lack of financial means. Many poor people have a better life than many rich people.
It is this human deteriorated sool situation that I have tried to describe.
There is as much pride in poverty as in wealth. There is as much happiness and misfortune in poverty as in wealth. It is obvious that wealth brings comfort at the level of ease, but ease is often a source of misfortune and it is not always a life choice without consequences. The degradation of the planet driven by a need for ease is the real proof. A simple life brings much more satisfaction than a life complicated by a need for ease. Drawing water from the river that provides clear, clean water is simpler than a complicated aqueduct and does not overturn the environment compared to sewerage produced by the facility achieved by a complicated water system that rejects the tons of waste to make easier by a tap the flow of water in thousands of homes. You will tell me yes but ... It's a bit like poverty. Generating a population with too many people for the simple reason of making a dominant empire is not natural. We exist in nature and we want to bend this nature to our egocentric needs simply because we want to be powerful and dominant. At the same time by this need we generate the poverty that affects everything in humanity. It's not easy I agree. Where does the genocide of the human being end? Who will end it? Poverty is a genocide that affects us, everyone agrees. Is there a solution to this genocide of nature and of the human being as a consequence to our actions of megalomania?

The sculpture built with tin can attempts to illustrate poverty. Has she managed to make a difference? This is not the purpose of this exercise. Sculpture, like all artistic forms that exist, only serves to illustrate what we are and does not contain a solution to our life problems. However, I thought I could demonstrate that the waste as a work of art by comparing it to a real situation of our life could reflect on this situation. By exposing waste as a work of art, I intended to take the waste out of its environment and bring it into the living room as an object of reflection of who we are.

The sculptures built with the tin can also serve as inking point for the constitution of a non-profit organization (OSBL) in Quebec, which through the sale of the works of the donor artists to collectors will by donating to works of charity help the poor to survive. READ THE PROJECT
