Lungs of ocean

A series started in 2014 is an on-going project constituted of dozens of corals made by Aude from cloth and pearls, often found and recycled. These sculptures are the result of painstakingly minute and lengthy work, close to jewelry, and represent the wide diversity of these animals, each bearing the latin name of the species as its title.

Under glass globes, frozen in time, similarly to specimens kept in Natural History museums or Curiosity Cabinets, they are precious witnesses to the frailty of nature and endangered ecosystems around us.
