Presents an archive of earthly natural forms. The acts of collecting, saving, and documenting that they represent demonstrate impetus to preserve spaces that are confronted with the danger of depletion. In library of stones, most of which are amorphous and some of which have changed shape through use, researches the question of whether social memory can be derived from the geological memories of stones. From primitive hunting methods to shelters, reminds us of the relationship between the historical memory of civilisation and stone, the raw material of military and incorporeal structures. From the artist’s perspective, the stones, systematically stows in the library point to nature, the source of absolute knowledge. They also present a vivid image regarding the conditions of cities pre-urbanisation.
