Cica Ghost's "Ruins"

I was much excited about Cica Ghost's latest art installation, "Ruins". Her previous works have appealed to me a great deal and I was very happy to hear about the recent opening of this one.


In a nutshell, it's an apocalyptic vision of a post-human urban setting. The place is deserted and whatever remains of the natural world takes over. This is very different from some of Cica's previous installations, where the landscape was dominated by rusty, mechanical flowers and all of nature seemed either man-made or mimicking the industrial products of human culture.




Strangely, "Ruins" presents a comforting vision. Although signs of civilization lay scattered around, in various stages of decay and collapse, life is still there - and it's thriving. Wild flowers break through wooden panels and brick walls; black birds fly around. The abandoned city feels ominous, yet alive and animated at the same time.


Make sure you don't miss a visit to "Ruins." When it comes to inworld artwork, the opening of this installation is one of the highlights of the season.
