FRAGMENTS OF MINING STONE | Sculpture By MOVIMENTO
Gerlach & Heilig
Various phenomena are put together in a collage-like manner through our furniture typological perception to form 6 objects from different fragments and staged in an installation. The objects from the Fragments of Mining Stone collection relate to and elude the typology of furniture. They do not specify a concrete use, nor do they pretend to carry any use at all in the classical sense. As a quotation from museum suspensions of fossils, metal connectors were designed to join the fragments of the stones together. They refer to the period of origin of the different stones by means of embossed dates. For this type of slate, this means that 5 mm of material thickness equals 1000 years of creation time.
