Readymade by Nature is a project of contemporary Cabinet de Curiosités made of natural elements expanded into artworks. Every element is connected to a physical location on Earth, triggering the value of the corresponding artwork.
In the project Readymade by Nature, I am planning to connect the monetary value of the artworks i am creating with a biomarker like the duck marbled teal (Cerceta Pardilla) present locally at the wetland el Hondo. If the specie goes down, the value of my artwork goes down also. This proposal is a response to the new economical - ecological Oikanomics model from the Oika project. We can not live without nature, we are nature.
The marbled teal is a virtually extinct specie. A local program at the wetland el Hondo is trying to reintroduce this bird.
