Marea Collage
is a project coming from the observation of the Adriatic shore in Fano, Italy. It is a collection of objects assembled from fragments of semi-finished slabs (industrial waste) which have been dumped in the river and transported to the Adriatic shore by the tide.
The regular thickness of the granite slabs show the industrial provenance of the rocks, whilst the eroded edges and rough texture show the agency of the sea.
How long have these debris been adrift? Where are they coming from?
Extracted and discarded by humans, then reshaped by the sea, the debris are carefully collected, cleaned and assembled through capable artisan hands, revealing the entanglements of human and non-human fluxes shaping our world.
