All This Stuff Is Going Away, sculptures by Paul Rousso
All This Stuff Is Going Away encloses the common objects that characterize the everyday life of a consumer society. Discover more now!
Paul Rousso is an American artist famous for his three-dimensional works made with everyday objects such as banknotes or the pages of the New York Times: because everything is sculptural. All This Stuff Is Going Away takes up the legacy of a consumerist era with which we must inevitably deal, turning garbage into art.
It’s nice, isn’t it? Paul’s research also tends to enhance the paper element, which will soon disappear definitively, making it “a monument to the printed word”.
The dimensions of the objects are exaggerated, enlarged and extreme: for a declaredly pop art yield. The material mixes, bends, tears and finds new life in the form of a pillar-symbol of the civilization of the twentieth century.
Paul’s operation raises a thousand questions and brings out new points of view. If you want to take a look at other works by this artist, you can visit his website here.
