Uku Sepsivart is a sculptor who is interested in the relationship between nature, animals and humans. His works are often created in collaboration with some animals, such as bees or birds.
In his work, he deals often with the potential danger of becoming too close to nature and human's fear of physical destruction. As the physical body is inevitably destructive, a slow extinction is inscribed in his sculptures.
"PORTRAIT OF A HUMAN AS A BUG HOTEL"
The work is a mental continuation of the work ‘Self-Portrait with Animals’ completed in 2017,
in which Uku Sepsivart addresses the possible danger of becoming too close to nature through the fear of physical destruction.
By creating perishable sculptures the artist expresses the inevitability of the physical destruction of the human body.
In the human figure, that was created during the TAKKK art symposium, is the slow destruction also inscribed. The figure is a suitable place for
insects and microorganisms and is located near the supposed burial place of the former governor of the Tammiku manor.
