What remains if we forget to take care of ourselves and our environment?
We risk being left with only inert concrete blocks, made of residual strata of the aggregate of our lives! Full of emptiness and as light as a sheet of paper.
"Oubliée #5" is the testimony of what we should commit to avoid.
« Oubliée #5 » is from the "Réfléchissons-y" (Let's think about it) project.
This project took shape after the observation of the global geopolitical and environmental situation. It discusses armed conflicts, natural disasters, inappropriate human behaviors… and their consequences on people and their environment.
From a defined scenario (If we lack kindness ... what will remain of Life on earth, how to preserve it?) I created, like a plea, a set of artworks that appeal to the sensitivity and the memory rather than the functionality. This vision, materialized through sculptures, bas-reliefs, installation and objects, give shape to the potential destructions that the Humanity can suffer, if we the humans we have not enough kindness.
The objective of this project, still in progress, is to initiate an awareness of the beauty, the fragility, the power of Life, which can subsequently be transformed into a desire for commitment for the benefit of its preservation. .
Working mainly with fallen materials, this choice is essential, it is an integral part of this search for the enhancement of Life.
In this metaphorical artwork, rusty metal embodies the passing of time and oblivion, the slabs of recycled paper pulp represent strata of concrete aggregate suggesting the weight and the inalterability of this material but also the fragility of the stratification of human lives through the low density and alterability of paper. And the silk threads are present symbolize the essence of the lost lives.
By choosing mainly recycled paper and fibers, I choose that the artworks can quickly be altered over time, only rusted steel residues will resist.
This choice allows "Oubliée #5" and the project « Réfléchissons-y » to embody more deeply the fragility of Life.
