The age of this pair of marble chairs predates mankind by hundreds of thousands of years and will be here long after we have gone. A flickering human-shaped skull, with engraved sutures based on animal bones, is placed on one chair, while the opposing chair invites the audience to sit and ponder.
The work is part of the artist’s ongoing project A Slow Remembering of A Long Forgetting, which emphasizes the intertwining of our collective and individual destiny’s. Throughout the project, we are reminded of human’s ancient struggles yet very recent existence in the scope of geological time. While the human species in the scope of time occupies a mere blip on the timeline of the universe, we import so much on the minute details of life and tend to overlook that we not only belong to the universe but to each other as well.
