PIPELINES AND SINKHOLES

2019

Series of three found one gallon gasoline cans, 04:00 mins single channel videos projected from pico projectors concealed by fake rocks. The pieces each sit on custom made 26″ x11″ floating shelves

 

In 2017 an earlier version of the work was shown as part of a larger installation with the same title:

Pipelines and Sinkholes is an installation of found objects with videos projected on them. While some of the objects are pieces of junk, discarded empty oil cans for example; others, like the fossils, are of museum quality. Some of the videos were shot near sinkholes by the Dead Sea, others in the Texas desert. Both locations attest to the environmentally exploitative use of natural resources by corporations. The fossilized and videoed insects stress further today’s accelerated rate of extinction rate of certain species. The result is a museum-like display desk of found objects and moving images linking the objects to the places of origin- Sergio Edelzstein curator
