Lungs of ocean

Series produced between 2016 and 2020, this long-term project brings together several dozen artificial corals assembled by Aude Bourgine from textile and recycled materials. These sculptures are the result of meticulous work and represent the great diversity of these animals. The artist protects these endangered specimens under glass globes, frozen in time, like species preserved in museums or cabinets of curiosities, they are precious witnesses to the vulnerability of endangered ecosystems.
