Suns are scrap-metal artworks produced in collaboration with Gdańsk Shipyard workmen. The artist refers to the double meaning of the sun: as a life-giving source of light, but also to the threats posed by it in the inevitable climate catastrophe. The works’ steel forms bring to mind pagan totems of solar deities, evoking the sun as one the main forces creating life on earth.
