"WASTE LANDSCAPE", PAYSAGE MANUFACTURÉ, INSTALLATIOND'ÉLISE MORIN ET CLÉMENCE ÉLIARD

Du 21 juillet au 11 septembre dans la Halle d'Aubervilliers | Vernissage le jeudi 21 juillet à 18h.....................................­........................................­........................................­........................

"Waste Landscape" est un paysage artificiel vallonné de 600m2 revêtu d'une cuirasse de 60 000 CD collectés, triés et cousus à la main. Ces CD usagés ou invendus sont des supports de mémoire condamnés qui disparaissent peu à peu de notre quotidien pour participer à l'édification d'immenses déchetteries toxiques à ciel ouvert, flottantes ou enfouies.Fabriquée à base de pétrole, cette nappe de CD réfléchissante façonne des dunes aux reflets métalliques, une mer immobile : l'échelle monumentale révèle l'aspect précieux d'un petit objet quotidien.

"WasteLandscape" is a 600 square meters artificial undulating landscape covered by an armor of 60 000 unsold or collected CDs, which have been sorted and hand-sewn.

It is well known that CDs are condemned to gradually disappear from our daily life, and to later participate in the construction of immense open-air, floating or buried toxic waste reception centers.

Made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes: the monumental scale of the art work reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object.

The project joins a global, innovative and committed approach, from its means of production until the end of its "life".

"WasteLandscape" will be displayed in locations coherent with the stakes of the project: the role of art in society, the sensitization to environmental problems through culture, the alternative mode of production and the valuation of district associative work and professional rehabilitation.

Over the course of multiple exhibitions, "WasteLandscape" will go through quite a few transformations before being entirely recycled into polycarbonate. The roaming will allow both artists to pursue new awareness-raising activities.
