The surreal sculptures of figures fused with organic forms by Claudia Fontes

Argentinian artist Claudia Fontes creates surreal sculptures of people fused with organic forms, evoking human behavior and political, cultural, and social questions. Hir pieces are made of flaxseed paper porcelain.

I am after the poetic and political potential that emerge from making things and gathering with others. I have a long-standing interest in human behaviour and in what role art plays in it. I see my work as being a mediator of the multiple agencies involved in the making and the gathering while steering away from representation. (…) My early work responded to a need for understanding how things come to be and how change happens, be it in a natural, cultural or social context. While being a young artist in Argentina and in The Netherlands, the postcolonial political and artistic scene I was immersed in made me develop a keen interest in history and strategies of decolonisation that involved collaborations with others. This decolonial notion of ‘other’ expanded very quickly to embrace logics of co-existence beyond the human, and to frame my work into a post-human perspective.
