Daiga Grantina


Bean acts as an imaginary window from below to the ground level. Feathers inside the work resemble seeds which are so ripe they soon seem to start dropping from the inside of the bodily formation that makes the shell. Even in the most miserable place, something new might emerge and the work symbolises the potential of new beginnings.

Daiga Grantina (b. 1985) is an artist born in Latvia, who lives and works in Paris. She creates large-scale sculptural assemblages that emulate the natural world, often resembling terrariums and vegetation. Her laboured configurations employ synthetic materials and incorporate conflicting physical qualities: soft and hard, transparent and opaque, mobile and static, strong and weak.
