In the style of Mario Merz’s archetypal sculptures, Pierre&Marie reproduces basic gestures of humans in their struggle to survive, and creates a parody of nature. Symbol of nomadic building, Igloo/Maison is a structure made with recycled mirrors and with materials found in the immediate surroundings. The installation is a self-image of the artists who have been living in it for twelve days. Related to the issue of representation, the mirror is absorbed into the work, thus becoming both image and subject, support and surface. It provokes a duplication of reality and views. As for the igloo, which is a structure combining nature and architecture, it recalls a liveable space dematerializing the landscape.
Materials: mirror, plywood, branches.
