476 Promises (Distinction), detail

476 Promises follows marble and its representations throughout Europe: observations, assumptions and inferences are kept in qualitative situational case studies from which the redundant keywords are extracted and assigned a geographical location. In each of them, a marble imitation flag is set and photographed.

Materials being discursive, their subjectivity (origin, position, authorship, ...) reveals in a concrete way a less tangible form of practice of power: the promises. A promise, as in a solemn pledge of something to someone, is nothing else than a hold up situation involving a hijacker and a hijacked. The latter finds her.him.them self.ves caught in a momentum that only the hijacker has the power to grant, or to deny. It is a capitalisation of the hypothesis of a future to come. The traces found in this material are the fundamental subject of this work, it is an exploration of ideological and territorial places through the precarity of representation.
