Cloud to Ground #02, 2021
Marjolijn Dijkman

Resin and artificial fulgurite with sand from future lithium mining site in Manono in DR Congo
20 x 30 cm
Unique piece

The works in the sculptural series Cloud to Ground refer to fulgurites, a phenomenon commonly referred to as “fossilized lightning.” Formed when electricity discharges into the ground, these formations comprise masses of vitrified organic debris. Made in collaboration with an electro-technician, Dijkman created artificial fulgurites by discharging electricity into earth collected from mining sites in Belgium and the Democratic Republic of Congo, which she then suspended in resin pyramids.
