Basement Ape
Is an absurd cave of a futurecro-magnon, a very late modern human (cro-magnon meaning originally an early modern human). In a post apocalyptic future men are living in basement cave balancing between industrial remains (electrical devices, pavements, concrete building) and the spontaneity of their poor engineering actions, as both instinctive and sublime, building a fire, and the necessary totems to their spirituality.
this installation displays together a Matter lamp and some Monumenta sculptures for the show A grammar of the Third Person at Corner College, Zurich.
With Stephane Barbier Bouvet, Kueng/Caputo, Jochen Weber, Kai Linke, Xabier Salaberria & David Heitz
