Huma

Pandora 2019

Mixed media (electrical equipment, cables, metal, manikins, wood, all recycled)

80 x 50 x 60 cm

Humanoid sculptures created out of recycled materials which symbolize symbiosis between body and machine, unification of all organisms, inclusion of all brings us closer to the idea of organic work, a society/community/city where everything is connected - one organism. The idea was dreamed up by the Positivists who believed that society resembled a living organism; Just as the health of all the organs is necessary for the proper functioning of the organism, the same is true for the well-being of society. Even development of all its layers and areas of life is also necessary.

Huma - Dominika Wiśniewska is a Poland-born and Berlin-based artist and event producer.
The concept started after an accident and a series of medical issues which hindered her day to day life for some time. She thought to herself, “Wouldn’t it be great, if I could just swap my body parts so easily that I could just get on with my life?”
