RESONANCE OF THE INVISIBLE
2024, C-Mine, Genk, Belgium

Plastique Fantastique's new kinetic artwork explores the breathing interplay of air and movement in two adjacent spaces within the former coal mine in Genk.

A first empty room is filled with a transparent volume that expands and contracts in a continuous rhythm of inflation and deflation. As the object goes up and down, it reflects an imaginary lift, evoking the confluence of labor and the underground. The surroundings are filled and emptied in an ever-changing perspective where industrial echoes are controlled and amplified.

In a second room, an over-dimensional machine, once used to operate the lift, fills the space. To enhance its presence, it is covered by a lightweight, translucent pneumatic structure that rhythmically extends and compresses. As the installation starts to breathe, the room pulses, turning a once static piece of machinery into a dynamic entity.

Both spaces, orchestrated by an auditory landscape, resonate the rubbing melodies of the post-organic mine.
