A MOUNTAIN ON THE WALL - 2014 -
The mountain is a powerful image itself, mysterious, it is a place to escape, which recreates itself. It is a sacred place.
How to materialize this mental image ?
Using a topographic structure and a CNC mill I recreated the 3D structure inspired of a Pyrénées map.
Precise cutting into plywood, layer by layer following the mapping of the mountain drawing I've made.
It hangs on the wall and functions as a cabinet though a compartment in its core. Its interior is also a landscape with abstract structure and shelving for its contents.
Realized in Vincent de Rijk's workshop in Rotterdam.
