Daily Archeology

Antibacterial soap

Unique

With "Daily Archeology" (2010), Adrien Missika reverses and accelerates the aging process of an unlikely archaeological object. Common soaps are subjected to a relatively long period of inactivity, during which they are turned into unique archaeological objects. In order to preserve, protect and defend them from the wear of time, as if they were real historical artifacts, these everyday objects are paradoxically museified. Through the idea of Bunker4, a ruin in cement of a recent past, the idea of the museum is questioned in an era where conservation seems to be in contradiction with the dromologic spirit of the contemporary era.
