The Stained Mountain
Create an interactive sculpture out of ice cubes piled into the shape of the Louvre Pyramid and place it outside to melt.
The installation is meant to reflect and create awareness on global warming. It aims to bring attention to the museum’s sponsorship deal with the oil company, Total who is responsible to a substantial amount of damage brought to the environment.
We documented it from both afar and upclose, aligning the ice pyramid with the Louvre pyramid, hides it first and then reveals it, with acrylic paint in ice cubes that leave marks after they melt.
