Texture of time
Monoliths made from hundred year old cedar wood of the cognac cellars of Monnet, France.
23 Monoliths
2019 – 2020

This series is composed of wooden monoliths, each with a different engraved lettering. Recovered and saved in extremis from destruction in the the historical cognac cellars of Monnet, in the Charentes region of France, the hundred-year-old cedar and oak wood used is the main actor of this time-devoted installation. Solid and noble, it no longer consolidates century-old buildings but, as a silent witness, supports the building of memory. The lettering presented on the monoliths, prepared and created by hand and engraved in a specialized atelier, reveals on each of them citations from authors such as Proust, Heidegger or Goethe, who devoted part of their reflection to the notion of time. Each letter engraved in the monolith is composed into a word. Each word in turn composes a sentence that reveals its philosophical meaning when one takes the time to explore. That is the moment when the meaning from the monolith’s materiality transcends and literary beauty is revealed. The next moment, the fragile prose hidden in the ancient wood merges with the surface of the monolith to propose a texture of time.

Texture du temps
Bois de cèdre centenaire de chain Monnet,
France
23 Monolithes
2019 – 2020

« Cette œuvre est composée de monolithes
 en bois. Récupéré et sauvé in extremis de
la destruction dans les anciens chais Monnet
à Cognac en Charente, le bois de cèdre
utilisé est un acteur à part entière de cette installation consacrée au temps. Robuste et noble, il ne consolide plus les bâtiments centenaires mais, tel un témoin silencieux, soutient l’édifice de la mémoire. Le lettrage présent sur les monolithes, préparé et créé à la main et gravé dans un atelier spécialisé, dévoile sur chacun d ́entre eux un extrait de textes d’auteurs, tels Proust, Heidegger ou Goethe, qui ont consacré une partie de leur réflexion à la notion du temps. Chaque lettre gravée dans le monolithe compose un mot. Chaque mot compose à son tour une phrase qui égrène son sens philosophique lorsque le temps de l’exploration s’installe. À cet instant, le sens transcende la matérialité du monolithe
et la beauté littéraire se dévoile. L ́instant d ́après, la prose fragile dissimulée dans le bois ancien
se confond avec la surface du monolithe pour proposer une texture du temps.» Jörg Bräuer
