"White Gold, Habitus Cubique"
(White Gold, Cubic Habit - 11 pc)
What will our future looks like?
Source of life, the basis of subsistence.
As a set of concrete Pyrites on which colonies of microorganisms reproduce.
Sparsed over devastated landscapes so life can expand and take place.
White Gold, Habitus Cubique (11 pieces) 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.
"White Gold, Habitus Cubique" is a part of this vision and evokes growing hope and rebirth. Artwork is crafted by materials used such as paper fibers, pins and recycled paper pulp (egg boxes). Each of these materials have a metaphoric meaning.
The fiber (rice paper) evokes the notion of purity, life and the recycled paper pulp represents the density and the inalterability and pins represents the human action.
By choosing mainly recycled paper and vegetable fibers, I choose that the artwork can quickly be altered over time, only pins will resist. This choice allows "White Gold, Habitus Cubique" and the project « Réfléchissons-y » to embody more deeply the fragility of Life.
