2013 / 2014
In the first phase of the work ‘Memoire’, I laced garden wire, fixed it on the ground of a cemetery and burned it. People had to walk on the work. That way, they forced the work to leave a trace on the ground gradually.
It is about memory and the impression you leave on the world by living. The lines used in the work are both structured and unstructured, as a metaphor for how our life-path is developing during a life time.
'Memoire' became a more sculptural installation in 2014, where it was presented in a (more or less) white room. Now the memory of the first phase remains. Still the directions of the lines can also be read as the structure of memory.
