Museum of Humankind
To celebrate its 25 years, the Kunsthalle Arbon organise a group show. The curator Deborah Keller selected works around the main theme «Space» in its different aspects.
My installation is called «Museum of Humankind», it is a group of white sculptures on a blackboard. The sculptures are copies of Human artefacts, from different origin and meanings, from religious objects to stone axe. Each object is made in a special mix of plaster and marble powder, and fired at 1200°C. This mixture transforms into quicklime, highly reactive, and combines with the cabon dioxyde present in the room. This chemical reaction makes the sculptures expand and decay.
The sculptures are diluted into the ambiant space, then they fall appart and become white powder, creating a constellation of chalk powder on the blackboard.
