Comprising sculpture, textile, video, foley and text, the installation was built around a column of 11 boxes, each of which contains a small sculpture designed for weathering, an edition in multiple parts. After visiting the installation, viewers were invited to take a box away with them and follow the instructions to install the work. Just as the rain comes and goes, the work resolves through its dispersal. WEATHERWATCHING became a whole of parts and things, made of matter that vanishes and spreads.
Installed for the length of a storm, 3-6 February 2022
Installation view, Zaratan-Arte Contemporânea, Lisbon
