KRIŠS SALMANIS – Piknik / Picnic
The sculpture shows a person in a hazardous materials suit Hazmat Level A . It is a piece of personal protective equipment that consists of an impermeable whole-body garment worn in toxic environments. The figure is presented in an ordinary outdoor situation: looking at the sea, taking a picture of a cloud, sitting in a swing, holding an unopened lunch box, touching a tree curiously.
“Whatever happens, nature will come out fine. It is the humans who will suffer.” This quote from a lecture by Professor Jan Marcin Węsławski inspired the artist in this project.
Technique: aluminum, epoxy paint
