Conceptualised as a multi-part work, 18C – MEMORY OF AN EVANESCENT LANDSCAPE deals with the various facets of coal. In a performance that was documented in a video, Griffiths distilled an essence of coal, turned it into a perfume and manufactured a synthetic diamond. Through her involvement with the different shapes of carbon, the artist reflects on the end of underground coal mining in Germany in 2018. >>
