This 1580inches installation has a central column with a cascade of plants surrounded by flower beds. Realized in radiography, paper, textile, porcelain, wood, foam and geotextile it questions us about the fragility of our universe. The choice of the medical imaging medium allowed me to integrate the human into this grandiose but endangered nature, reminding us of our duty to preserve it. Sensitive to ecological questions, my artistic practice finds here again a double meaning: to create by recycling the waste.

AMARGER is working predominantly with medical imagery and new technologies, in large-scale installations, playing with the aesthetic factors of transparency and reflection. Her work unquestionably fashion a reflection about human, its place in the society, the universe and the nature. She has a deep-rooted interest for the scientific and medical world and is best known for large-scale X Rays installations and discarded materials artworks. Sensitive to ecological issues, she finds in her artistic practice a symbolic double direction: create artworks by recycling discarded materials.
