VIEW OF THE EXHIBITION
346 pieces of pianted fiberglass, print on photographic paper and black adhesive vinyl on wall variable dimensions The project consists in reproducing the panel of a tropical modern house in real size tranforming the tiles in fiberglass pieces of the same modulation 15x15cm, and 10cm height. Moving the same way as the constitution of ruin, the pieces of this panel are removed and start substituting words of a manifesto about issues on architecture, living, mankind, history and humanity’s role in civilization. These substitutions remove what’s contextual in the text’s object, and reveal a activistic political structure and an utopian breath from another time. Ruin and utopia feed today a nostalgic relation with the past, in which History and modernism are consumed as class goods. © Edouard Fraipont
