ORGANIC MULTIPLES:  Exploring the complexities of multiplicity by the redefinition of the object and its symbolism. 

 

Establishing parallelisms with Nature, these works emerge from a tension between the concepts of introduced and native species. They pose questions around identity and the collective acting as a metaphor of the concept of migration, our similarities and uniqueness, and the ties that bind us together. 

 

The site-specific public art installations explore the concept of belonging throughout the study of plants' anatomy at a cellular and external level.

Installed in site-specific configurations varying from landscapes to architectural spaces, Avila’s large-scale biomorphic installations create minimal impact to the environment, and explore the close relationship between the notions of multiplicity, a sense of place and belonging.
