Once used, once taken


Once used, once taken. 2020. Hessian, steel, grass.

Price and commission work negotiable please contact.

Created as part of the exhibition 'Horizons' located in Puy de Sancy, France, 'Once used, once taken' is a series of site-specific installations.

Unusual sculptures, created from organic and natural materials, hug the silhouettes of hazelnut trees.
Moss, mushrooms, and grass gradually cover over the structures in the summertime. The artwork is alive and becomes an integral part of the landscape. It presents seasonal and life cycles, questioning the visitor as to the ephemeral nature of art: is art supposed to last forever, while so many things are denoted as single-use yet often last for several decades?

Interview available: 
















The exhibition runs from the 11th of July until the 1st of November 2020.
