The global dust project

Hannah Bertram


21 November 2014–13 December 2014

The Global Dust Project is an artwork that explores the material and poetic possibilities of dust. It is a shape-shifting work that evolves and devolves as it travels around the world. In each location; dust is gathered, an installation is made, a performance takes place, and documentation is created and displayed. At the end of each exhibition the dust and documentation are incorporated into the work for the next location. Prior to the Kings ARI, it will have traveled from Norway to the USA to India and afterwards will return to the USA followed by Morocco, Australia, France, Hong Kong and Japan.
Central to the project is the use of dust: as a material that is im/material and form/less; as a metaphor for the transitory nature of all things; and as a model for the structure of the project that mimics the constantly accumulative and dispersive behaviour of dust. This progressive cycle reflects the protean nature of dust – migratory, airborne, coming to rest, scattering and leaving particles behind, collecting and incorporating particles, being acted upon, dividing and reforming.
