Ready Made

« Cities were built to measured time, to take away time to nature. »Point Omega – Don Dellilo

In this ready made, as Robert Smithson will reconsider mines and human « left over » in his work, a sample of abandoned construction was taken to show it under the white cube’s lights. That action will draw attention on the opposition between two elements and two temporalities.

The artefact, raw construction material, timeless, stationary, with a programmed purpose is a standard conventional artwork.

This object, like most artworks, is compromised by the plants, evolving, lively and random.This hybrid artefact/living that makes this ready made, will change the usually way of artworks’ conservation by its fragility and evolutility.
