  • About the work

Giclee print (framed). Edition of 6.

The Meteorite Hunter is an archive of a search for meteorites and the places they come from.

Following the journey of a fictitious hunter, The Meteorite Hunter documents the artifacts found, both overlooked and celebrated through the process, presenting them equally and without disparity.

Sometimes the quest to experience something unique or unusual, overshadows the familiar and recognisable. The series focuses on finding the extraordinary in everyday life, using the meteorite as a metaphor for the fantastic hidden in the mundane.

 

The work is presented as a collection of artifacts, where only one of the objects’ is an actual meteorite. By combining factual and fictional works, it encourages engagement and participation in the search for the meteorite. Playing on the ambiguity of the imagery makes us reconsider everyday objects, effectively trying to create circumstances where the familiar appears unfamiliar.
