UNTITLED PROJECT: CABIN [THOREAU] [ANGLET], 2016 –– a carved and painted replica of Henry David Thoreau’s cabin at Walden Pond near Concord, Massachusetts. This cabin-as-object is intended to function as a sincere/unsatisfactory object providing a critical commentary on the theatre of nature and the commodification of self-reliance––all of which is useful for considering one’s place in the natural world. This project was sited specifically on the shore of Lac Nord of Izadia Ecological Park in Anglet, France for La Littorale #6, Biennale Internationale D’Art Contemporain Anglet-Côte Basque curated by Paul Ardenne. [A special thanks to Camille Stierli for his assistance in the construction of this project.]
