Cryptids

2019

Sculptures in concrete that incorporate electronics, plastic plants, sound and video.

Cryptids, like the gorilla, giant squid and okapi, are no longer hearsay and legend but real creatures recognized by science. Others, like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster, continue to tempt the hopeful and the adventurous with the possibility of their existence.

Jeron’s cryptids are enactments of anti-anthropocentrism, placing importance on the symbiosis of humans, animals, plants and things. The work refers to the ecological relationships of the species without separation of the biological and the social in the context of “natureculture” thinking (Donna Haraway).

These are creatures which do not exist, or rather, which nobody has seen before, and confuse the authentic with the fake.
