N.Lichtig, Parfum d'Oubli—hand blown glass spheres, hermetically sealed, containing perfume fragrance, silkscreen print on fabric, 2016—

The installation consists of fragrance-filled hand blown glass spheres placed on a silkscreen print on fabric, optically distorting the surface, they are creating literally "memory holes". The fragrance contained in the spheres has been especially created by the chemistry department of the University of Montpellier for this piece. It evoques the notion of oblivion and forgetfulness. The fragrance is not accessible unless the spere is broken.
