With this piece I wanted to show how human beings dominate and destroy nature for money.

This piece is made with an Indonesian banknote collected in a flea market.

The oxidised brass frame is a found element to which I added bars to create a cage in which the Orang-utan is trapped.

Size: W4,5 × H4,5 × L1 cm

My work is about money and its value in our occidental society. I’m asking myself about the future of a world where the economy, the consumption’ society and the profit never stop to increase to the detriment of the essential nature of human being.

A trip to India and Asia made me more sensitive to our society the self-satisfaction, comfort, and tasteless luxury which enters everywhere in our daily way of life. I use coins and notes to create jewels, purses, cuffs, which denounce the pretentious, arrogant and frivolous character of the fineries and other fashionable accessories worn by the mass of conventional people.
