“Runes”

Sculpture by Addé 2016

 

Of all the remains, traces, remnants, relics, left by human kind, many cannot be decipher.

Still, they are the touching signs of a will to communicate, transmit, give sense.

The remote trace of an intention to express « we were there » and, maybe, somehow, an attempt to say «do not forget us».

When Winston Churchill was asked to cut arts funding to help the war effort, he answered, « then what would-we be fighting for ».

Although it might be apocryphal, what remains from our predecessors, consists in (per se) artefacts, of which, the most moving parts are artworks, paintings, sculptures, engravings we approach with the very same senses, the same emotion.
