The installation EARTH is a relief that represents the stone slabs on the coast where I live, with the difference being that the work – set in a hypothetical future - carries fossils from the time when humans ruled the earth. To highlight our inability to take sufficiently powerful measures to save our environment, I take here the future perspective that humanity has never been, and will never be, able to take sufficient measures in time.
There are impoverished soils that can never recover. They cover huge land areas that have been and continue to be cultivated in a one-sided and unsustainable way, with only one crop being grown, a situation which eventually causes the soil to be depleted.
Water is a hard currency and in combination with the rise in temperature and deforestation, the soils are drying up and the ecological balance is being put out of harmony.
