PureWet (dialyses), 2017

Copper pipes, tin, polystyrene, duct tape, papier mâché, acrylic paint, inner tube, brass screws, boat varnish, PVC pipes, pump, electrical system, wood, plastic sheet.

Three abstract fountains. A pump sends the water to pipes, which then streams it under the painted forms. As the title may suggest, those ageing abstract organs are somehow maintained alive thanks to an artificial transit of the liquid through them (indeed, in Art History, those forms almost are a century old.)

With special thanks to Claude Troller & his students from the CFPC, Fabien Duperrex.
