2010 Memories (Porquerolles)

Tree stumps, concrete shards and discarded rusting metal wire are strange bedfellows, especially in a bucolic Mediterranean setting.
They, however, all turn out to be challenging materials with a fantastic texture and malleability.They assemble well together, gaining an unexpected and uncanny beauty.

The product of the demolition of  1930’s coastal defense batteries, they are too evocative to just dump.
Commissioned by a local winemaking estate,they became one of the 2 sitespecific artwork installations I made on the island of Porquerolles.
