Flooded Modernity by Asmund Havsteen

Created as a part of ‘Floating Art’, an annual festival held by the Vejle Art Museum Danish artist Asmund Havesteen-Mikkelsen creates a sunken twin of the Villa Savoye, a modernist villa in Poissy, on the outskirts of Paris, France. Created originally by Swiss architects Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret who began the works in 1928 and completed in 1931, the replica unlike the concrete original is constructed from styrofoam, white painted plywood, and plexiglass.

” The sculpture – a 1:1 mock-up of a corner from Le Corbusiers Villa Savoye from 1929.  Project for Vejle Floating Art Festival opening 23rd of June. A comment on the ‘sinking’ of the public sphere after the disclosure of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the manipulation of democratic elections through social media.”
