People who have saved this event:



Claire Hooper and Maria Loboda are making a collaborative work for the seventh week of fig-2, looking at rediscovered sacred places. Forgetfulness and omnipresence are evoked by a tomb for forgotten gods, alongside weapons, a flawed colour study of the universe, and an anthropomorphic piece of burned wood. Missing swords stashed in preparation for an unknown future, juxtaposed with the riches built in the old temple, shine through the cracks in the walls exposing the gold within.

Hooper and Loboda capture the atmosphere of the archaeological dig, through a battle between atheism and culture, reminiscent of the past and the archaeology of forgetting in anticipation of the ruins. Their installation expands onto the surfaces of the ICA Studio, contracting to a room of charged content.
