작품설명
‘거미’는 작가의 나라인 체코에서 행운을 상징한다. 작가는 페트병으로 제작된 두 마리의 거미가 태화강에 두 배의 행운을 가져다주길 기원한다. 2004년부터 페트병을 재활용하여 ‘페트 아트(PET-ART)’의 작업세계를 선보이고 있는 그녀는 작품을 통해 전 세계적인 플라스틱 사용 문제에 대한 대중의 관심을 불러일으키고자 한다. 낭비되는 일상용품을 재활용하여 예술로 바꾸는 것이 작업의 기초이며, 재활용 쓰레기통을 이용하거나 주변 지인들의 기부를 받아 재료를 수집하고 있다. 작가는 관객들 또한 집과 직장에서 쓰이는 일상적인 물건을 창의적인 방식으로 재사용해보기를 기대한다.
