Abfutura. Contemporary art exhibition by Céline Murphy

Abfutura in Latin means “what is about to disappear”. Playing on the archaeological theme, this contemporary art exhibition addresses the notions of excavating, curating and conserving near-absence. Academically qualified as an archaeologist, but also trained as an artist, Céline works at the intersection of both disciplines, expressing thoughts, impressions and discoveries in both written and visual form. Currently fascinated with ‘the fragment’, be it physical or conceptual, Céline explores its narrative value in reconstructions - or, perhaps more precisely, constructions - of the past. Through ceramic installations, she researches different avenues for understanding broken objects or decaying constructions, and for curating the most minute traces of things almost entirely gone.
