In this new in situ installation Strata (03.09 > 08.11.2020), Justine Bougerol (born 1988, France, lives and works in Brussels), travels through the thickness of things. By creating an artificial mountain – or is it an iceberg? – straddling the two superimposed spaces of CENTRALE.lab, the artist works with the concept of the diorama and questions the dreamlike and contemplative potential that emanates from a material image, or in other words, from imagined matter.
By manipulating form, colour and organic substance of this portion of miniaturized landscape, Justine Bougerol draws our gaze to the breach, the crack, visible as a shameless wound, to make the intimate value contained in an unfathomable depth resonate.
Entrance to CENTRALE.lab is limited to two people, without reservation.
