Breaking dinnerware is so common that most people don’t even blink an eye after uttering a few choice words right after the fact, yet the sculpture titled Plate by Bernard Gigounon and Lucile Soufflet forces people to think about this occurrence in a new light. A gigantic version of the classic plate, it focuses on the domestic cycle a broken one incurs in the household. A broken plate is replaced by a new plate that is subsequently broken and replaced again—over and over the ritual goes.

Located in a small Belgian town, Plate by Bernard Gigounon and Lucile Soufflet addresses “themes such as fragility, impermanence and the passage of time are not frequently dealt with in public space and thus, the plate highlights the dynamism of constant mutation,” according to artists.
