Cryptids

2019
Karl Heinz Jeron

Sculptures in concrete that incorporate plastic plants, soundscape and video

Jeron uses the debris of our civilisation, packing material and plastic bottles to create the moulds for his cast in concrete sculptures. They are concerned with the materiality of the city; the remains of the ongoing civilisation creating speculative constellations.  

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 creatures confuse the authentic with the fake.
