They are objects of thin crusts of original earth surfaces detached from their place
of origin and taken to exhibitions around the globe.
We find ground formations/ information on surfaces of dunes, in riverbeds, at sea shores, on mountains, but also in cities and at industrial sites.
During the DECRUSTATION process we select, bind and remove such earth surfaces to exhibit them: elevate them to eye level changing perspectives and contexts.
