The lascivious, floral and soft sculptures of Margarita Sampson at The Salon of Infectious Desires.

In the ‘Infectious Desires’ series by Margarita Sampson an imaginary literary salon is literally  over-run by soft textile beings. Strangely beautiful creatures, that resemble marine flora, are crawling over the furniture. Mutant colonies of corals climb across the upholstery. An octopus´s garden of delirious beauteousness.
