Twilight # 256   [2017]
Light bulbs, wood, acrylic
120 x 120 x 13 cm

256 shattered light bulbs are aligned on a grid of sixteen equally-spaced rows. Fragments of blown-out bulbs cling to their caps, while others have completely disappeared, leaving only stems and contact wires. Under a glass box and now protected against exterior forces, they appear as debris from architecture that has suffered an extreme commotion or been blown out by a blast. If the symbol of an illuminated light bulb signifies innovation and the notion of genius, the explosion of the object suggests obfuscation and obscurantism. This cemetery of exploded light bulbs invites a variety of readings, evoking obsolescence and the failure of reason.
