Archives of the Discardedis a group show by four artists, who share a common focus on the ephemeral nature of life and strive to record the passage of time through the observation of everyday mundane objects. Beyond the beauty of their images, the artists strive to remind us that death is the end of all human journeys. The aesthetics of the discarded obliquely epitomize the essence of humanity.The Book of Erosionsby Hélène Le Chatelier’s (France) represents a book of zoology ravaged by humidity. Singaporean Pang uses a different angle by recording the departure and the disapperance. Titled Nobody, his series mainly represents empy streets in megalopolis. In Queen of Sheba – The Singapore Sidewalk, Kavita Issar Batra (India–UK) gives new life to flowers, leaves, tree bark fragments and seeds that are dying or already dead on the sidewalk. Abandoned Landscapesby Sharis Garabedian (Armenia) is a series of photos which make sublime discarded elements, such as metallic automotive parts, found in the bareness of the Armenian countryside.
