Architecture and archeology are very different disciplines – one involving building up, the other digging down – but they share roots in the same ancient Greek word ‘arche’, meaning ‘beginning’. An architect is the originator of a building; an archeologist delves into the origins of civilisations. There is a bit of both in Anne Desmet, an artist famous for her architectural imagery who is forever digging beneath the surfaces of things to explore the layers of history beneath.
True to its title, this show includes several ‘time sequences’ of works, some tracking changes in light or weather over the course of hours, others playing skipping stones across the centuries.
