• Aerial by Debombourg Baptist
  • Posted 32 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 6621 Views
  • Aerial is a site-specific installation piece by French artist Debombourg Baptist which examines the idea of togetherness within something broken. The piece is made from over two tons of glass, wood and nails and took over 420 hours to create. Many artists believe the time taken to create a piece of work is irrelevant and the idea itself is what should be judged or measured, but Baptist records how long each piece takes to make, asking the question "What if I were the first artist to get paid by the hour?"

    Speaking further about the piece Baptist said, "Destruction, like construction, is a human expression and a paradox of life because it is can be both good and evil. My personal point of view is that destruction is inevitably linked to repair."
