Sasha Meret’s recent work has evolved in the space of sculptural constructions using polystyrene cutlery as modules to reconstruct familiar objects, and later to create intriguing and thought provoking new shapes that defy any familiar category. He takes refuge in The Plastic Menagerie that he has created seeking at the same time harmony and surprise. A quote from Schopenhauer sums up his intentions in this series of works: “…here we contemplate perfection of form without any kind of worldly agenda, and thus any intrusion of utility or politics would ruin the point of beauty”.
