Travelling, migrating ephemeral installations …

Fossils are part of Earth’s history.  They carry a strange power that make us dream of distant worlds.  Nautiloids, giant flying creatures, ammonites and ancient whale bones rise up like sculptures on forest floors, in tidal pools or peak out of cliff walls.

Exquisite engravings of ferns, prints of veined wings of strange insects and impressions of dinosaurs feathers are preserved, like sacred scriptures on Earth’s ancient stone tablets.  They are fossilized testaments of the passage of life, grafted to stone.

We, humans, are also part of the fossil record.  These installations are a call to remember that we are all but a fragile presence on Earth, this wonderful planet that is both our cradle and our grave.

“I’m intrigued by forms that once held life … the shell, the cocoon, the egg, the human body.  These forms, mummified by Mother Earth, carry within their hallowed vessels imprints of their previous existence.” – Éveline Gallant Fournier
