The Dissolution series started in 2010.
Different symbolic materials and objects (teeth, pearls, jade, silver…) are put to the test of aging.
The effect of accelerated time is simulated by an acid bath and recorded on video.
During these experiments we can see trough time, between the escaping bubbles and the imperceptibly decomposing shapes.
In the end of the dissolution, the question is to know what’s left from the material time unmade.
Traces of the diluted, deconstructed, transformed object are kept for a possible precipitation, re-crystalisation.
