The Ravages Of Time

 

Tombstone of 134 x 84 cm, paraffin wax, talc powder and aluminium, 2021.

The artist created her own tombstone, engraved in paraffin wax. The work reflects on the tenacity with which we try to be remembered by future generation, and the fragile, fugitive character of those "remainders". The work will not stand the test of time, being made from paraffin wax, just as the memory to our life achievements will not stand the time and die soon after us.

In situ installation in the Church of Notre Dame du Mont Carmel in the city of Thuin, 2021.
