Thomas Hirschhorn: Sas de contamination
Thomas Hirschhorn's work, 'SAS de contamination', is a site specific installation created for the inauguration of the Lambert Collection. More than two decades later, Hirshhorn's work, conceptualised to explore the role of art in society, returns to Avignon. Viewers walk through a corridor of objects bound and gridded with metal chains; elements of ordinary life are at once cordoned off and suspended for display. 'Sas de contamination' translates to contamination airlock: Hirshhorn creates an excavation of the everyday, suspended in heavy chain, which plays with the viewer's experience of installation.
