Babylone

Babylone is piece exploring the tracks of past civilisations, and questioning the historical truth of an artefact. This installation made of ashes and clay is inspired by the ancient city of Pompei and what is still considered as one of world’s seven wonders, the Babylone gardens. Archeologists and historians never proved the existence or exact location of this garden, although it is present in literature. I tried with this piece to build the remains of this garden, as if it had finally been discovered.
