MARBLE DUST

WHAT IS MARBLE DUST ?

_ Marble dust is used as the base for painter's jesso, a traditional building material and an ancient glass cleaning product. It can be found in hardware stores here in france as 'blanc de meudon' or 'blanc d'espagne', depending on where it came from.

WHAT SURFACES CAN IT BE APPLIED ON?

_ Any size of glass surface, from a series of small windows ( as in the london sluice artfair in the video below) to XL glass walls or mirrors. In case the architecture of the space doesnt include a large glass surface we can install a series of aluminium sheets in its place, as in the picture above (a project at dumbo art center at AIR Gallery) .

IN WHAT CONTEXT HAS IT BEEN DONE SO FAR?

_ Considering the magical aspect of this material it is mostly presented as a live performence, but has been done also as a work for an exhibition prepared before. it has been presented at museums, galleries, university campus and commercial buildings in Brooklyn, Miami, London, Tel-Aviv, Marseille and more.

here are few selected projects:

Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, France.

Nimes, France.

Sluice art fair, London.

Air gallery, Dumbo art center, Brooklyn.

Fotokino, Marseille, France.

BOS, Brooklyn.


TAPE WALL

Working with tape is simmilar to the marble dust wall work in the sense that it can be prepeared in advance or as a live performance. there are three variations : color, washi tape and painters tape

The above wall work has been drawn with tape - than colored, missing the tape from the final result

Working with washi tape allows a large variety of colors, it stays on for a long time and doesn't damage the surface when taken off.

Painters tape comes in blue or green, it stays on for a long time and doesn't damage the surface when taken off.
