Ones to Watch: Christophe Domergue

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

The latest works by multi-disciplinary artist Christophe Domergue are exemplary of his dexterity with material and technique. In his series Post-Industrial Peelings, the artist records the intricate particulars of an abandoned industrial site in Sydney’s Inner West. For this particular body of work, Christophe has assumed the dual role of artist and archaeologist, capturing the detritus of the factory’s sub-strata by physically peeling surfaces from the site – an archival process that both lifts off and leaves behind. The site of the work is set for redevelopment, meaning that soon there may be no trace of what existed other than Christophe’s peelings. In this sense, the Post-Industrial Peelings series blurs the line between new creation and cultural artefact.
