The stage

2017

Sand, cement, metal frame, water (rain)
2pcs; 41 x 64 cm

 

The dimensions of the metal frame are derived from the typical proportions of an upright tombstone. 

The frame is left, filled with artificial sandstone mixture, in a place where a tragic accident happened. On the surface of the artificial stone a process takes place in combination with the rain which creates the structure. The surface then becomes a record of the time and rain, reflecting the natural life cycle. After 24 hours the frame is removed leaving the artificial stone object behind. 

This is an endless project of creating „memorials“ throughout 
the world.
