the plate


“The Plate” by Belgian duo Lucile Soufflet and Bernard Gigounon (previously presented here), located at La Louvière, Belgium.
Being a direct reference to the town’s ceramics manufactoring heritage, the huge broken plate can be seen as both an archeological artefact -an expression of the industry’s decline-, and as an incongruous surreal object.
Found here.
