/ Trümmerberge \
For a second time of residency, Anne Houel expanded her research on Trümmerberge (artificial hills in Berlin made of rubbles from the ruins of WW2) by creating shapes and materials collections.
« In Berlin, in hearts of dust grows silent forests, a recreational greenery where palimpsests of stories continue to be written. The anthropic filling / Trümmerberge \ is symbolized in mountains made of 500 000 000 cubic meters of ruins which embody paradoxes of disappearance and the fascinating story of resilience : how nature and vegetation integrate a foreign body into the invisibility of the everyday landscape.»
From that research, Anne Houel worked with the projection of a future, where time brings history to the surface.
In parallel, through the creation of large-format watercolor paintings she led a personal archeology where she revisited the inverted construction process used in her sculptures called Tobrouk bringing to the surface of the paper interior spaces that no longer exist.
