Pile Driver: Philippe Donadini messes things up

by Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay

C Magazine, Winter 2006, no. 92, pp. 7-9

Author Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay visits Parisian artist Philippe Donadini's home. Donadini is best known for his anthropological video pieces that document queer sexuality within Paris during the early 2000s. During a studio visit Nemerofsky Ramsay is introduced to Donadini's ongoing interactive sculpture which takes the form of a pile of collected objects on the floor. Donadini continuously adds, removes and adjust objects within the pile. The pile questions the boundaries between private and public spaces.
