RELICS OF THE PAST
Relics of the past 1 & 2 are small casted sections from a larger architectural capital, remnants of decayed objects that have lived on in this sculptural form resembling a decayed organic form that may have grown and morphed over a period of time like an old piece of architecture that lies exposed to nature and the elements . It bears the nostalgia of the past, yet is preserved in time. The two stone pieces titled 'Mining the Earth's Mantle,' are casted from moulds of construction stones that are used in buildings. The idea of representing these building materials as pieces of the earths crust and preserving them as relics, subverts the very idea of a relic and questions what is important to preserve and more importantly what is left to do so in the current 21st century of building and rebuilding cities where everything is temporal and in modes of re- construction.
