Case Study #2 : Robert Smithson , 400 Seattle Horizons (Destroyed) , Instamatic Snapshots , 1969 , glued on wall . is an interpretation by Kristien Daem of a destroyed piece by Robert Smithson. This is the second piece in a series of re-interpretations of disappeared pieces from the conceptual sixties. The artist's approach is both subjective and art-historical.She creates new images from the instructions and historical sources as she gathers traces of the work and interrogates the witnesses and actors of that time about their memory of the original piece and its presentation. Together these two opposite angles create the new piece, an exploration of the historical momentum actualizing the landscape from the time with precision and freedom at the same time, embracing the fascination that was entertained by the mystic of non-objective concept art. She embraces lightly this impossibility of our contemporary culture to recreate another entropic landscape in movement from peripheral horizons; the impossible purity of the unreachable horizon that is now filled with objects, trash, layers of abandonment, dystopia and romanticism.
