Stories that were not told
Duration: 2 hours
Personal histories and cultural meanings are layered with stories, myths, and sayings that we are told from infancy to adulthood. Natural artifacts tell us stories of time and human relations from another world. Objects and species that share postcolonial histories, as in specimens from far away lands that were curiosities and journeyed continents, now occupy a different place in our contemporary imagination. Often their memory, and original value and purpose has become extinct.
Remembering the Tail Bone
In this work, I lend a subtle mechanical movement to the found objects, to symbolically suggest self-destruction and self-construction through layers of time that are always in flux.
Retenir la terre
Maps tell stories
Of long time forgotten cities
Covered with sand
As the horizon vanishes
And sand dunes disintergrate
We collect horizon abstracts in test tubes
Landslides bring us down
So that we can construct again
In waves we find truth
While castles made of sand, crumble into the sea,
Work from the known, to the unknown
It is the public’s role to attempt to discover what contexts exist and how they came to be created. The excavation involves the removal of topsoil, cleaning, or “troweling back” the surface of the sand until the discovery of edges, which are definable.
