Finissage Biblioteca Del Sol_Press#8 | 10/08/2017 at 19:00

Libraries are still the best way to preserve the important aspects of man’s written inheritance for the future,” says the Belgian artist Louis De Cordier [Cosco]. “Not DVDs, hard disks, microchips or the internet.”
On a piece of land at 2,000 meters altitude in the Spanish Sierra Nevada, he built an underground library and a seed bank for non-genetically modified plants. There the minimal variations in temperature and the dry climate of the remote location are ideal for delaying the ravages of time. The books on art, science and spirituality that he aims to preserve for the next 2,000 years are his own selection, but anyone is welcome to send him books to consider.
Louis De Cordier (BE, 1978) lives and works in Cadiar, Spain & Oostende, Belgium. He is a homo universalis: an artist, philosopher and scientist. The work by Louis De Cordier can be interpreted in multiple ways. A red thread is his strong connection to nature and the preservation of our planet. Industrialized civilization he considers as ultimately not sustainable. In the Carrington Gallery he explores the origins of our predicament concerning climate change, bee die-offs, and decreasing biodiversity, with the goal to formulate positive action, by holding talks, and the presentation of sculptures, drawings, videos and installations.
