Impermanent Sculptures (of Indestructible Objects)

Bärbel Praun

2016 - Ongoing


Pollution and waste have always been an obsession of mine, connected with frustration and anger. The series ‚Impermanent Sculptures (of Indestructible Objects)' is a response regarding this environmental concern. To react to the garbage I find during my walks I created a frame of rules for me to follow:

1. Collect garbage and found objects.

2. React as immediately and spontaneously as possible on site.

3. Create a sculpture within a limited time frame.

4. Take a photograph, showing a short moment of balance and fragility.

The title refers both to the ephemeral aspect of the sculptures and to the time the garbage takes to decompose.
