Arthur Cordier’s practice reflects on the economic uses of public space, with a focus on the display structures and the consumerist logic of advertising. Working with sculpture, installation, video, photography, and performance, he explores the forms of decay inherent to promotional systems...

In situ installation of obsolete signs.

The above-ground foundation makes the initial advertising device visible in its entirety. The horizontal tilting causes an unstable transition of the structure, between an uprooted tree and a sign removed from its original location.

The seemingly importance and verticality of the advertising is tilted in a cantilevered relationship to the ground. The sign elongated but alive, now only dazzles the asphalt.

The installation is part of the collective exhibition and FRICHE residency which took place in the backyard of a semi-industrial building south of Brussels.
