Mercredi Miniature – Constructing Destruction – Abandoned Kitchen – Work in Progress

Miniature Abandoned Kitchen Sculpture, 2014, StΓ©phanie Kilgast

Obviously one scene a week was a bit much of a challenge πŸ˜€
I started a new scene, it got messy. And then life got in the way and the scene is not finished.
So the final result will be next week πŸ™‚

Abandoned Kitchen – Work in Progress
Inspiration : my mum who loves to photograph abandoned spaces and often takes part in the ‘lost spaces’ tours in Berlin; Lori Nix, whose work I adore; history of humankind (we’ve been through a few ends of civilizations already); the sublime (beauty in what is technically ugly)
Goods : a kitchen I made a few years ago but I didn’t really like anymore. The fridge was found on ebay, the sink I bought in a miniature shop in Barcelona πŸ™‚
Why? : I have a fascination for abandoned places, in the sense that they show what’s going to be left when we die or go. They remind us of our inevitable end. And also that things (and vegetation) will outlive us.
