Guillaume Krick et Benjamin Thomas - Flooring horizons
Through photographs, sounds and sculptures, this exhibition examines land development and questions the concept of infinite growth in a finite world with limited resources. A meditation on the constructing-destructing machine and suburban and urban planning, Flooring horizons turns technology away from its functional dimension and exploits its fantastical potential. An excavator becomes a prehistoric animal and the scoop of a digger, a shark’s fin. Miniature cities turn around in an arrangement comparable to an infernal machine. Ground with virtual motifs replaces the fields of peri-urban zones.
Guillaume Krick and Benjamin Thomas construct precise works in which sophistication and savoir-faire rub shoulders with the primitive dimension of the tool used to work the earth and our contradictory relationship with these tools.
The first part of the exhibition Flooring horizons was presented at the Musée de la Roche-sur-Yon from December 13, 2014 to February 21, 2015.
Exhibition produced in collaboration with the Musée de la Roche sur Yon, with the support of the collective Extra-Muros (Nantes), the Région Pays de la Loire, Fabrikculture of Hégenheim and Agelia.
