2015 - ongoing - various size, objects & technics
This body of work focuses on one specific object, every day object from the past century, post-numeric object made useless/”has-been” by the digital age.
By challenging the object’s symbolic, where it has been found and what it refers to, these installations can create a new narrative.
“A stool romance” (1) is a fusion of a traditional Morrocan stool (wood, re-used tires) and its modern replica (glass, aluminium) - creating a new object which exists through this combination of mate-rials and time, beyond its original function;
“Un phare dans la nuit” is an installation using the headlight of a stranded Syrian boat found in Greece and Burgeat’s drawing of it, years after the accident.
“A night in Ldn” is composed of re-used canisters which have seen their context & purpose completely change through time; originally from the kitchen to today’s parties and festivals.
(4) “Strange machine gun” transforms a mechanical component of an old agricol machine now useless & abandoned into the component of an abstract weapon.
Using these found objects as materials, but charged with meaning & history accumulated over the years, is an act of re-interpretation allowing to draw a discussion between times.
