There is a moment when a clinging bead of water, in quiet orb-like suspension, becomes a droplet. The droplet reflects its surroundings while gathering light within. There is a moment when molten glass transforms from liquid to solid. This instant of transition is accompanied by an emission of beautiful light. Momento freezes that moment of ephemeral beauty and turns it into a source of light. The elliptical shadow, folding over itself, captures the glassmaker’s spinning technique....
Christian Boltanski (born 1944) is a French sculptor, photographer, painter and film maker. In 1986, Boltanski began creating mixed media/materials installations with light as essential concept. Tin boxes, altar-like construction of framed and manipulated photographs (e.g. Chases School, 1986–1987), photographs... all those elements and materials used in his work are used in order to represent deep contemplation regarding reconstruction of past.
