A series of ordinary domestic and quotidian objects which seek to remind of an ever present, but virtually neglected environment: the riverbank of the Thames.
This merely temporarily accessible space bears testimony of London’s history from the past until this very moment. Given its physical composition, it has been continuously compiling a collection of historic objects of culture which once were washed up on the shore, been buried in the mud, and which have now been laid open to the public anew.
Sedimentary Matter consists of seven objects, seven stories. Each object is a conglomerate of a piece of debris found in the mud along the river Thames and a brass element. It reflects the adversarial status of waste in historic and cultural artifacts. This affiliation of old and new material links the past to the present, while at the same time gives a new utility.
