In this installation, the collective explores the tangible consequences of the floods in the summer of 2021. More specifically, it looks at the waste it generated and the different practices used to manage it.
Waste production is a universal and complex phenomenon. As such, it provides an interesting prism for understanding how a given society manages its relationship with resources: what it preserves and what it throws away, and how that is done. The violence, intensity and exceptional nature of the floods in the summer of 2021 led to an exacerbation of waste production. In response, they have also given rise to unusually intense practices of restoration, recovery and care, which we hope to demonstrate the interest and importance of in order to reflect more broadly on the way our society manages its material resources.
