Object: Object nr. 004 (L)
Term: Circular piece of glass / The object chose me
Property: Jaime Llopis
This object was pick up in the Brussels flea market the day it has been brought to the Natural History Museum of Hope. The person who brought the object decided to make an experiment to find an object of hope. He wanted to be ‘picked up’ by an object that triggered his attention rather then choose an object symbolically. And in this practice resides the hope. The object ‘touched’ the one that was looking for something.
The object has a circular glass shape, it’s hard to know to what it was before, maybe a picture frame.. What is is now , is an object you can see through, that makes something appear through, it’s an in between tool to look, an hinge between resistance and availability.
