“‘They Fell’ is a poetic commentary to the fragile ecosystem of Kivinokka. When the leaves start to degrade a number of gleaming metal wire leaves appear among a cave of bushes and branches. The use of simple wire, normally used to bind things together temporarily, create an infinite and sold link to the site and appears as a contradistinction to the decomposition of the falling leaves.”
British-born artist Duncan Matthews, now based in Finland, has a background in arts and sculpturing. He finds his main inspiration for his works in bringing broken things back to life and working with materials that would otherwise go unnoticed or be discarded.
