Perishable Lightning Rod
Untitled Perishable Lightning Rod, 2016

Ghirdoveni Art Installation; corrugated kraft roll, wood, metal rod
A ludic exercise about my home’s village fear of storm and lightnings. The lingam structure made from rod and flammable corrugated paper, is acting as a psychic projection upon which we can mix the fear with the excitement, and cure the superstition. The locals use to ground small metal objects believing they can protect them from lightning. So taking the same approach, but using exaggeration in scale, we are able to unveil and diminish the importance of superstition, clearing a way for conscience.
