ARTEFACT/ARTIFACT

An object made by a human being, typically an item of historical or cultural significance.  In these new works I imagine myself to be an archeologist who has dug up a number of artifacts from the middle of the last century, i.e. the 1960s.  In making these new works I purposely used items that were already well worn and in some cases even damaged, to give the effect of looking at something that has been resurrected from either someone's basement or even from a garbage dump.

Dans ces nouvelles œuvres, je m'imagine être un archéologue qui a creusé un certain nombre d'artefacts à partir du milieu du siècle dernier, à savoir les années 1960. En faisant ces nouveaux travaux, j'ai utilisé des articles déjà bien usés, et même dans certains cas endommagés, pour donner l'impression au spectateur qu'il s'agit d'un objet trouvé lors d'une fouille archéologique ou même depuis un décharge d'ordure.  J'ai étiqueté mes pièces de la même manière dont les archéologues étiquètent les objets trouvés lors de l'excavation des pièces de poterie ou de tuyaux, etc.
