21st August – 26th September 2015
It is with great pleasure that Marie Kirkegaard welcomes you to Silas Inoue’s second solo exhibition in the gallery, New Works for Extraterrestrials.
If some extraterrestrial beings would look at the exhibition, they would discover that the works mainly consists of granite. According to a newer theory* proposed by a group of renowned geologists and geochemists, granite plays a fundamental role in the origin of life on earth. Billions of years ago the earth was covered with water, and the ocean floor, which consist of basalt rocks, constantly sank into itself in a continuous melting process. In this ungrateful soup, living organism’s started to create oxygen by the means of photosynthesis.
