Destabilizing a Young Ground is a site-specific project commissioned by the Centre D’Art Contemporain Geneve in collaboration with the Fonds Cantonal d’Art Contemporain (FCAC) and Léman Express. The work is part of the public art’s program “Mire”, an exposition of video shows inside several Swiss railway stations. The idea behind the work is to describe different types of trajectories through diverse geological formations, carried out by a device inspired by a model designed by the American architect Lebbeus Wood. Interest turns towards the simulation, and then reproduction, of a digitally recreated ground that loses its main characteristic of a fixed support to follow a path that pushes it towards a new state.
