A call from the future. Krochman and Fogel invite us to Fort Intemporal
Written by Delphine Trouillard   

fort-intemporal2.pngKintsugi is a Japanese art technique that uses gold to reattach broken pottery. Gold runs along the fracture lines and makes the broken object more valuable than it used to be as one piece. A metaphorical embrace of the damage.

 

Artist Wendy Krochmal and architect Bobby Fogel produced Fort Intermporal, a site-specific project to salvage the valuable compound of Forte Marghera, a 19th-century military fort.

 

The colour of glass emphasizes fractures and is different, in essence and in worth, than a repair.

Fort Intemporal suggests us not to get rid of what is broken or old, because signs of wear can be turned into something precious. In a world where the turnover of the objects around us is so fast, this is a lesson to learn.

 

 

«Fort Intemporal»
Until 26 November

Forte Marghera - Mestre, Venice
