Anne de Carbuccia and Time Shrine Foundation, together with the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, are delighted to present the One • One Planet One Future exhibition, which will be held at MMOMA in Moscow from 21st June to 10th September 2017 and which features 32 works specifically chosen by the artist.
Anne de Carbuccia, a Franco-American environmental artist, has traveled to the most remote, beautiful and delicate places on the planet in order to document how much we have lost so far and how much we still have to lose. Animals at risk of extinction, peoples abused by wars or violence of all kinds, natural landscapes destroyed by rubbish or pollution: these are the main themes chosen by Anne.
During her expeditions, the artist creates Time Shrines consisting of on-site installations featuring symbolic artifacts that call to mind the ‘Vanitas’, namely the skull as a symbol of the futility of earthly life, the hourglass to remind us that the clock is constantly ticking and finally, organic elements and objects found precisely at the place where the shot was taken and chosen for their symbolic meaning. Time Shrine photography thereby becomes the permanent documentation of this temporary installation. These surprising pictures invite us to reflect on the beauty and fragility of the earth, inspiring us to adopt more sustainable habits and forms of behaviour.
