Massacre of the Innocents 2050
70 x 60 / Upcycled Carbon Emissions(After Rubens' Massacre of the Innocents of 1611)
I've always been fascinated by this woman, her personal trauma so visible even in the twisting mass of bodies, each one of them desperate to stop the event from happening.
Her fear is about to be realized, and she knows it.
For me, lifting her from Ruben's piece, and making her image with my hands out of pollution collected from diesel tailpipes in London and Dehli recontextualizes her fear of impending loss for her child to one of loss for the stable world and climate.
