Le dragon, delph, delv, drag.
duo Khurtova & Bourlanges
PlanB Amsterdam, June 2016
We develop sculptural translations of a peculiar text of Jacques dedicated to the Dragon constellation: in an erratic tempo names of mountains are intertwined to weaving techniques, dragon etymology to digging machines and finally to the Omphalos, a stone carved with a textile pattern found in Delphi representing the origin of the world. The resulting installation of tangled earth, woven stones, concealed texts and intertwined elements of the archive allow the viewer to dive into an absurd yet poetical connection between matter and meaning.
thank you to Chloé Sapelkine & Renske Francissen for their weaving expertise
