Everything will be fine, 2022
500 insects (gold-plated)
Installation view: 100 x 100 x 3 cm
The installation “Everything will be fine” is dedicated to the preservation of the past and the transience of biodiversity and paints a radical but probable picture of a mass extinction, happening largely unnoticed or being ignored. The artwork consists of 500 dead insects preserved and covered in gold to reflect their true value to a functioning ecosystem. Despite its undeniable aesthetics, we are blinded by its fine appearance, for beneath a golden layer lies evidence of what man is willing to sacrifice for the sake of his existence.
