Ukrainian artist Anna Naduda created a luminous sculpture that has been installed on one of the lakes in the Rylskiy Park in Kyiv, Ukraine. The sculpture called “Water Plant” is a continuation of her “New Bionics” series. It took more than four months to create the piece. The artist used metal, resin glass and phosphors as basic materials for her sculpture. The overall weight of the piece is around 500 kilos.
“I used a scrap metal for the carcass and I have built a floating-island from plastic bottles. I had a “pleasure” to visit a metal scrap-heap and fields of unprocessed plastic bottles. It was an impressive experience,” says Anna.
“Water Plant” collects solar energy during the day and gives the light back during the night. The light is similar to the glow of plankton or moss.
Anna Naduda deals with sculpture, interactive installation, graphics and performance. She cooperates with musicians, video artists, and participates in many exhibitions and projects in Ukraine, France, Britain, Poland and the United States. She lives and works in Kyiv.
The installation was created as part of the Mural Social Club Festival that is organized by NGO Sky Art Foundation and Dmytro Palienko, curated by Julia Ostrovska and Oleg Sosnov.
