Never Ascending   Always shifting   Almost ending

Mixed media installation created with Raphaël Alexandre including a sculpture (L 3,2m x W 2,5m x H 2,1m) and a sound piece   2019
Presented at The Factory #4  collective exhibition  Djúpavík   Iceland   2019

Never ascending  Always shifting  Almost ending is an installation created especially for the Fish Oil Tank of the old factory of Djúpavík. The undefined object suspended between the columns of this abandoned territory seems to come from elsewhere. Few centimetres above the surface of the water lying in the tank, the unknown structure hovers over the water, standing still in a decaying space only affected by the harsh weather of the West fjords.
The sound, constantly reverberating, is taking over the tank, adding a soothing heaviness to the atmosphere. The presence of the object seems to have a logic of its own, unreachable to us.
Never ascending, Always shifting, Almost ending offers a possibility for the viewers to enter a fiction of their own in an out-of-time environment.
