By creating the swamp creatures for the Marshes Nature Reserve of Séné in the Gulf of Morbihan in France, sculptor Sophie Prestigiacomo captures the complicated relationship we have with nature. After two enigmatic beings visited the reserve a few years ago, an eight-more was added through a recent crowdfunding campaign.
Seaweed and mud are used to create the models, and the drying algae was done outside. Together with the organic environment they live in, the creatures’ “skin,” or colors, textures, and patterns, constantly evolve over time.
Viewers have the opportunity to interact with the sculptures and have a conversation about the diversity of flora and fauna and our relationship to these lands in addition to visiting the location.
