an installation by Myriam Tapp
In AETERNUM, Myriam Tapp explores the idea of the lost cities that may or may not have existed. The piece studies the phenomenons of myths and stories of these enigmatic cities that have no scientific proof. Aeternum plays with the imaginary and revery that taps into collective memories. Aeternum is a fictional city name where a world takes place and where the past reappears in the present.
Myriam Tapp’s work questions the transformations of our environment and the temporality of such transformations wherein the different layers of change are not always visible. She studies the landscape that we can see as well as the landscape that was and no longer exists. The house, a recurring object in her work, appears as the focus of her video-sculptures. These are ecosystems in which the architectural home is confronted to animated images.
