PIPELINES AND SINKHOLES

2017

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
