Swiss Institute

Delta of Pierre Vadi evokes visions of a lunar landscape where thin atmosphere has vitrified and warped. Rather than finding sedimentary deposits, one discovers the traces of construction: furled acrylic sheets, scattered stone screws, and circular saws of resin. The exhibition casts an anxiety onto all progression. It positions the viewer in a space where possible pasts and futures collide.
