marble from 18th century
107 x 47 x 26 cm
The sculptural installation ENOUGH consists of different historical building fragments from Amsterdam's 17th, 18th and 19th century monuments. The Municipality of Amsterdam has granted him possession of these architectural remains, which Pittas sees as a part of our collective memory, carrying knowledge and cultural-historical value. ENOUGH is based on the idea that hidden stories can be found in our material objects. The union of historical objects and contemporary discourse can create a sense of continuity of time and history, while at the same time revealing how people and places are connected and represented through the material aspects of our culture. In the sculpure ENOUGH, fragments crumbling off of the corrupted, now fragile, marble are recovered and transformed by the artist: pulverised and moulded, they are casted into forming the word "enough".
