Salvaged Landscape par Catie Newell

A Detroit, dans les décombres d’une maison incendiée, Catie Newell a récupéré les pièces de bois brulé et les a empilées pour créer un espace, passage vers l’intérieur et mémoire du sinistre.

Sur son travail, Catie Newell précise:

« Irreversible, transformed, and impaired – the material and spatial qualities of a house are dramatically altered with the introduction of fire. Severely damaged and unsafe, the house at 2230 14th Street necessitated a deconstruction. Framed by the setting and pace of demolition, Salvaged Landscape appropriates the charred wood from an arsoned house to create spatial adjustments which uncover the material qualities reliant on flame to exist. Amidst a purposeful tear-down, the project responds to the new textures, spaces, and light effects that resulted both from the fire and demolition. Using existing material from the house as the palette and existing spaces as form-work, Salvaged Landscape creates a new room in the life of the house keying into the opportunities present in its own timeline; constructed with the demolition of the house occurring around it. As a study of materials and light, the work explores the raw and scorched depths of the wood while simultaneously providing the work and the house with light punctures and the explorations of spaces intentionally left dark. »

Un talent incroyable, que de vouloir perpétrer l'âme d'un batiment, qui sans son intervention, serait voué à la destruction... L' Art est partout, même ou on l'attend le moins !!!!! Chapeau Catie
