Marie Ilse Bourlanges (1983, France) and Elena Khurtova (1982, Russia) have been working together since 2009. With materials such as textiles and ceramics in traditional crafts with modern technologies. The starting point is the material as a carrier of memories. In their reconstruction, they emphasize the transient nature of the material found and, in the process of making it, give new ‘failures’ and a new autonomy with a different necessity of function. The duo fabricated 400 ceramic tiles with a geometric pattern for Reversed Erosion (2010). They are unglazed and reputable for each track of use. From the moment a user enters the carpet, it contributes to a pattern of work. The idea of a carpet and an autonomous image motif, the object on our tracks continues to assimilate traces of memories.
