Assemblies: composite objects consisting of nature discoveries, mechanical parts and trouvailles.
The unique assemblies are very popular amongst collectors. The works of art are sometimes reminiscent of antique showpieces or fetish statues.
In these artworks various objects are used, such as stuffed animals, marble artefacts, steel and copper parts of tools as well as antiques and jewels. The apparent contradictions are united.
