Photo installation, ensemble of 12 posters of 85cm x 85cm each, black and white, 2015
This large photo installation will be composed of a set of independent photo posters. The twelve posters depict twelve busts’ fragments from Greek Antiquity, linked together with an imaginary horizon line.
The complete composition evokes panoramic photography of the moon, thus ambiguously playing with the notions of body, landscape and details.
I want to confront the museum’s historical objects with the spatial imaging that has influenced Sci-Fi aesthetics. While the wear and tear of time slowly transforms the sculptures back to their originally mineral state, their metamorphosis into cosmic landscapes draws an analogy between the secrets of their temporal distance and the fantasy that remote cosmic sites provoke.
