Project: "Réfléchissons-y" (Let's think about it)
"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" is part of the project « Réfléchissons-y » (Let’s think about it). This project is a reflection on the state of the world surrounding us, our relationship with Earth, others and ourselves and to ourselves as well as our future about which we have to be conscious of our responsibility.
The project « Réfléchissons-y » discusses armed conflicts, natural disasters, inappropriate human behaviors… and their consequences on people and their environment
It evokes a vision with the following reflections:
- After destruction… what will remain of Life on earth (plant life, animal life, human life)?
- After destruction ... how to rebuild, to create Life again?
This vision, materialized through sculptures and bas-reliefs, gives shape to the potential destructions that the Humanity can suffer, if we the humans we have not enough kindness.
"White Gold, Habitus Cubique" is a part of this vision and evokes growing hope and rebirth. Artwork is crafted by materials used such as xuan paper fibers, pins and recycled paper from egg boxes. Each of these materials have a metaphoric meaning.
- xuan paper fiber / concept of purity, the Life.
- recycled paper pulp / concrete, symbol of density and inalterability
- recycled paper pulp / fragility and vulnerability of the terrestrial Life
- pins / 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.
