Galbanum

Vincent Levrat – Galbanum

Through their emptiness and lack of function, wastelands are impervious to the social norm. In that sense, they can be considered as spaces of freedom, in which imagination can be expressed completely freely. I therefore occupied a wasteland, in order to make it my kingdom, a space of endless possibilities. It became a playground, in which I celebrated physical experimentation, craftsmanship and materiality, and escaped from the virtual and technological world. Worthless materials found on site were conducive to creative activity, once they had been triggered by the virtue of infantile naivety.
