the Christian Dior’s Volcanic asphalt wooden bench
December, 2006 | Project for a cafeteria Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts Paris,
asphalt on wood, found material | SUMO STUDIO® Shingo Yoshida, Ludovic Méhauté, Kuo-wei Lin
A «geo-orgamétrique» construction consisting of wood abandoned by the Christian Dior’s fashion show at the Art school in Paris ( ENSBA ), is made of asphalt, symbolizing the street situation: aggressive, alien construction and liquidity of things in urban spaces, it reminds us of the issues of crossing borders and development, this work echoes Robert Smithson’s work «Asphalt Rundown».
