Half-spheres, whose veined texture and earthy relief are reminiscent of distant planet, are hung on the wall along an offset horizontal line. Mixed with concrete, rock, earth and pigment, these «stars» reconfigure a planetary system whose name comes from Mesopotamian deities.
On the ground, a black concrete mixer suggests the piling up of rubble against its metal walls. In the drum clash monochrome minerals: volcanic rock, coal and black sand. The rotation of this industrial tool echoes a heliocentric system / formation by accretion of the material of our universe. Cosmic gigantism, out of human reach, is evoked here thanks to building materials directly related to the most down-to-earth activity: masonry. A rudimentary and prosaic mode that brings the mason of a demiurge to life with humor. A way to rehabilitate the original task of the artist, which consists of revealing unknown worlds and questioning the nature of reality.
