Story

The installation constitutes a series of thirty plaster tablets in a variety of geometric shapes located in the wooded area of the beach next to the pier. At first glance, the presentation of the installation is simply abstract and minimalist, a conceptual and aesthetic tradition that can be traced back to Malevich’s Black Square in 1915. In such an exotic tourist site the group of white tablets, short or tall, big or small, look somehow strange, absurd, and even uneasy. They take the simplest form and color, quiet and humble. But they can generate and contain the power to disturb the holiday mood of the visitors, encouraging each one to reflect the temporality of our lives, from the border of the other world, or, eternity. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
