Installation. 2018 Fallen leaves, fan
Deforestation is one of the first causes of global warming. QUÉ CALOR! wants to show how man is always turning to machines and technology to seize his natural environment. This anthropocentric behavior is currently revealed as a seductive or even life-saving response whose consequences are as damaging as the initial problem. The man arrived in a moment of rupture that indicates his inability to observe his environmental impact.
This cloud of suspended leaves freezes, on the one hand, this current moment of ecological crisis, which contrasts with the poetic and delicate flight of leaves animated by an industrial artefact.
The display device further accentuates the fabrication of this artificial landscape, a universe that refers to the zoo system in which the beauty of an exotic, idyllic landscape is exposed which ultimately only reflects the suffering of other non-human beings.
QUÉ CALOR! has been exhibited at galery Michel Journiac in Paris.
