Bricks - Piles of Bricks 3

2021
Performative installation with 5000 bricks
Edition 3 of 6

The project Bricks consists of the 2 video installations La couleur de la brique (2017) and Ingahi Kama (2018), the installation Circular construction versus human body – referring to Toshikatsu Endo (2018), the publication Piles des Bricks/Piles des briques (2020), the installations and performances Piles of Bricks (2020-ongoing) and the drawing series Brick Dust (2020-ongoing).

Piles of Bricks 3 is a site-specific work for the exhibition SYMPTOMS OF THE FUTURE: BRICKS — BASKETS — POTS in the gallery Out of Sight in Antwerp (March 26 – Mai 16, 2021). It’s a choreography for bricks performed during the exhibition and drawings on paper using the red dust that bricks shed. While the movement of bricks reconfigures the physical, heavy and earthly space, the drawing series ‘Brick Dust’ depict flying people made out of brick dust — airy, weightless and suspended in emptiness. A circular movement of soil and life is documented in this work.
