For the second phase of her residency, Anne Houel is pursuing her research into «trümmerberg», and wants to conduct sculptural experiments that put into perspective the various data gleaned from her site visits, 12 ruins mountains in Berlin, last year in july .
Following a workshop on rammed earth construction between 2022 and 2023, she will try to use her experience to create evolving volumes combining recycled materials and concrete.
She also aspires to create models of the summits of the «trümmerberg» , based on 3D topographical representations and drawings taken from plans showing the access roads to these summits.
In parallel with her research on the trümmerberge, Anne Houel is continuing her work on the individual bunkers known as «Tobruk». Her intention is to produce a corpus of watercolors depicting interior views of the molds used to cast her monolithic concrete sculptures. These now-defunct design tools were made from skin-toned extruded polystyrene in 1/10th scale. For his watercolors, the spaces will be re-expanded to the original scale.
