Par la force de son esprit et par sa sagesse il a discerné celle qui trompait d’avec celle qui étoit trompée. / By the power of this spirit and his wisdom he discerned who deceived from who was wrong
installation : restaured Engraving+concrete
After my restoration, this bizarre and anachronistic engraving, depicting the scene of the two mothers, (1700 circa) has gained a good stiffness, which encouraged me to tempt a spatial intervention referring to the columns of the Temple of King Solomon. ( the two columns that I realized in concrete have been put in correspondence to the columns represented in the engraving)
the contrast between the stiffness of the concrete columns and the fragility of etching damaged by time produces subtle and funny dialogues between past and present.
