Collaboration for One to One project with dancer and choreographer Yin Yue
Transferring movement One to One Project
Collaboration with artist Charlie Masson
Our collaboration was triggered by the destruction of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the ancient Temple of Bel in Palmyra, Syria, in August 2015. This senseless wreckage of a symbol of civilization that had withstood time, greatly affected both of us. We decided to express this through the process of incorporating the temple ruins on this collaborative work. This delicate and nostalgic collage has been applied to the fragile packaging material of corrugated cardboard, which in turn has been razed and cut away, creating depth in the image but also a partial loss of it. The work serves as a reminder of the transience of life; and of the transience of materials we assign value to. It is a memento mori representing absence with an illusion of presence, depicted on materials that, in themselves, are ephemeral.
This video below shows the technique we used with Charlie Masson to create a series of works titled Ruins
