Mat Collishaw, Venal Muse - Envirico sculpture, 2012
Collishaw's resin-sculpted flower is riddled with syphilitic diseases. This sinister creation, displayed in a glass and wood bell jar, pays tribute to Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal (1857), a book of poetry focused on the themes of decadence and eroticism. In this new work at Other Criteria, Mat Collishaw incites our polar attractions to beauty and corruption through his depictions of a debased nature.
