Carbon is a continously changing installation composed of heating elements constructed in 2018.
It is traveling from context to context, from city gatherings to rural landscapes.
The installation shapes a new temporal microcosmos around fire, resonating with the way society grew around the first humans that discovered fire.
Its presence introduces a new, yet familiar, vertical archetype that visually communicates with other landmarks in the landscape.
In between instalments I travel with the base element of Carbon to different contexts, stopping on the way to create small gatherings and discussions around fire.
Discarded chimneys, steel, steel wire, storm anchors.
Initial installation for Plan B Kunstenfestival.
Shown a.o. at De Biënnale Van België, Gouvernement, In De Ruimte and currently on display at 019.
