“PAR LA NATURE ÉPHÉMÈRE ET ARTIFICIELLE DES FRONTIÈRES ET PAR L’INCAPACITÉ DE L’HUMANITÉ À VIVRE SANS ELLES.” (“Through the artificial and ephemeral nature of borders and through humanity’s inability to function without them.”)
By a simple action inside the landscape:
- Take ownership of 100 square meters
- Delineate a border
- Inhabit that territory for one day
The artist creates a series of absurd micronations that invite us to reflect on the nature of borders and the very concept of the nation.
The artwork République, whose limits comply with the artificial criterion of geometry, ever only exists for 24 hours at a time and has only one inhabitant: the artist himself.
This series is part of STUPID BORDERS, a collection of conceptual projects that question the idea of the “nation” and emphasize Man’s strange sense of ownership over the Earth.
