Benjamin Lignel: La Disparition
Klimt02 | Gallery presents in Barcelona La Disparition, a project by benjamin Lignel that it involves three series of badges, images of clouds on gold backgrounds, an oversized leather case and an explanatory publication with almost no text.


La Disparition involves three series of badges, images of clouds on gold backgrounds, an oversized leather case and an explanatory publication with almost no text.
The title of the installation, the disappearance, reflects both what each series shows - the frame by frame dissolution of a cloud - and the series' gradual collapse, as badges get sold, given or lost. The project aims to challenge the nature of badges as carrier of bite-size ideologies: individual badges from La Disparition will not make any sense unless given a context (the series) and a narrative (the disappearance of a cloud). A flip-book was produced to show Season 1 as an animation, but it won't necessarily help visitors get over their frustration with this seemingly pointless project: it, too, will gradually loose its pages as time goes by.
