The Slow Transformation of Growing Grass Sculptures


We first came across artist Mathilde Roussel’s growing grass sculptures when they were exhibited at the Invisible Dog Gallery in Brooklyn, New York back in September 2010.

In this series of photos, notice how she shows the slow transformation of the suspended sculptures.

“The natural world, ingested as food becomes a component of human being,” she says on her website. “Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it’s origin, it’s transport, has an impact on us beyond it’s taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world – of abundance, of famine – and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.”
