Camille Kachani (Beirut, Lebanon, 1963) develops an inventive process of possibilities related to the process of transformation of nature. As she as a collection of trendy insects, and they are very in, today we show you this side of the artist.
Nowadays he is based in São Paulo, Brazil. From flies to ants, a varied offer of artistic bugs is showed to the world.
They could be stuffed animals, but they are the size of a sofa, referring to the sculptures of Claes Oldenburg. They could be small robots in the form of animals, but in the title “natura ex machina” a link with the Greek theater, of the “deus ex machina” appeared on the stage, lowered by a crane, to give meaning and conclusion to a Badly stitched webbing.
Here lies the crucial difference between a stuffed animal and a work of art: uncertainty, a vacant lot where Kachani’s production is in a comfort zone to cause discomfort in all other areas.His work uses everyday materials and objects, giving them new interpretations, resizing their scales and original functions.

Seems like bug and insects are a trend. You find them on clothes, accessories, furniture or in the air, but ther they are just annoying. People find “funny” and curious this new idea of having insects in their homes and with them everyday in their dressing items, so it’s definitely a trend for this epoch.
See for example this modern sideboard adorned with golden bugs. Isn’t it just awesome?
Will you follow the trend?
