Title: Exploring Immotality through Natural Fibre
Authors: Dwamena, Appiah
Issue Date: 13-Jun-2010
Abstract: Art and man are totally in separable. So far as there is a constant change in nature, man being part of it is destined to change. Art therefore cannot be static in relation to the style, material, techniques and all that makes a work of art. Sculptors, some years back were seriously dealing in materials for permanency like stone, wood, cement, metals and some others. Artists have moved into impermanent materials to create ephemeral art such as ice sculpture, explosives, gun powder, fruits, insects and many more. In this project, I produced soft sculptures using natural fibre materials with simple tools. Using non-conventional sculpting methods natural fibres such as coconut fiber, palm tree fiber, jute fiber and raffia have been used to produce sculptures which are titled ‘eternity’, ‘obaatanpa’, ‘still searching’, ‘anidaso wo ho’, ‘the living legend’, and the ‘black stool’ in two and three dimensional form to investigate the concept of immortality.
