An organic sculpture that changes its geometric shape once its components dry and decompose, the work’s title, Cella, refers to the eponymous room in classical architecture. The word "cella" comes from the Latin “celare”, meaning “to conceal”. It is also the name given to a closed room. In Roman temples, the cella usually contained a statue representing the deity venerated in the temple. The word “cell” later derived from “cella”.
At the beginning of the exhibition, Cella is the model of a compact arrangement of spheres assembled using fresh oranges. Its shape quickly changes and deteriorates to reveal the internal structure underlying it.
