Borna Libertines: “Urban Erosion”

Urban erosion is a natural phenomenon where materials in urban areas are gradually removed or dissolved by natural forces like rain, wind, and sun. This phenomenon has inspired my artistic exploration as I see the remnants of urban erosion as raw materials that hold historical and cultural significance. Instead of viewing erosion as decay or loss, I use the eroded material as a palette to create art that tells a story about the place and its history.

Urban erosion is more than just a physical change in the environment; it’s about the layers of history embedded in a place. As humans, we interact with these spaces, leaving our marks and memories. My art engages with this interplay between past and present. I aim to reveal hidden layers and uncover memories, both positive and negative, that add depth to my work.

I believe that through my art, I can invite viewers to confront their memories and experiences, just as erosion exposes hidden layers. My focus on transformation is evident in my art. Whether it’s the transformation of materials or the transformation of perception, I aim to challenge viewers’ perspectives and encourage them to see life through a different lens.

By using the remnants of urban erosion as my primary medium, I create art that invites people to reconsider what they thought they knew about a place. My art serves as a lens through which viewers can see the world differently, and I hope to encourage them to embrace transformation and growth.
