Aurelien Froment

Through the piece ‘Debuilding’ (2001), Aurelien Froment invites people to build Jenga-like structures using wooden blocks of varying sizes.

Initially stacked inside a single wooden trunk in the corner of the gallery, the blocks have since been scattered across the white floor by participants eagerly engrossed in the process of building their own imaginary dwellings, vehicles and towers. Like Neuenschwander’s ‘[‘]’, this work will also endure, because each creation is carefully disassembled by gallery staff every evening, ready to be reconfigured anew by visitors the next day.
