French Artist Creates Laundry Mound To Show Randomness Of Existence

Thirty tons of used clothing piled high on the floor of Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory is the latest artistic installment from French artist Christian Boltanski. Titled “No Man’s Land” the unsettling exhibit features a giant claw mounted above the 25-foot high mound which grabs and drops piles of clothes to the beat of a heart in an effort to show the randomness of our existence.

“It’s like a metaphor on the hand of God,” explains Boltanski. “Why this one is chosen and why that one isn’t.”

The artist continues, “We have this constant movement of the claw, which is an industrial claw, which keeps taking and dropping clothes. An actual fact, you might be run over in five minutes and God chooses who He is taking.”

Boltanski likens the clothes on the pile to dead bodies—both with no individuality.

While viewing the exhibit, visitors can have their heartbeat recorded which will be added to Boltanski’s abundant collection of over 40,000 cardiac recordings.
