Pitch Black Dry Sack

2019

Pitch Black Dry Sack forms a gestural counterpart to liberty’s fire in Marianne Deludes the World. The jug of water is empty and the arm is partially constructed from wood that has undergone the process of pyrolysis and become charcoal. These very basic elements–water and fire—coincide in charcoal, a result of fire, but also what we use to purify polluted water for human consumption, while a lack of water leads to rampant wildfire seasons.
