Gilles Cenazandotti – Future Bestiary

Sculpture from collected plastic waste.


Gilles Cenazandotti, like Mbongeni Buthelezi, Painting with Plastic is also creating awareness and giving plastic a new life. His series of sculptures and collages are created with waste he collects from the edges of the sea. His Future Bestiary project features large sculptures made from plastic of endangered animals.

The artist says this about the project –

“Impressed by everything that the Sea, in turn, rejects and transforms, on the beaches I harvest the products derived from petroleum and its industry. The choice of animals that are part of the endangered species completes this process. In covering these animals with a new skin harvested from the banks of the Sea, I hope to draw attention to this possible metamorphosis – to create a trompe l’oeil of a modified reality.” (via laughing squid and junk culture)
