Example text

The conscience suggested by the title indicates the inner sense of right and wrong, while the word consciousness points to the state of being aware of one’s own existence that is perhaps heightened during the destruction of the work. Yet this is no senseless destruction, instead the work seems more redolent of a sense of individual human enquiry as the foot and weight of the body is shifted onto the delicate china tile. The effect of so many feet ground the tiles to dust, a material subsequently used by Twomey, which is possessed of strong associations with ephemerality, memory and loss.

That could not happen to the objects kept in trust for the public by the V&A. By bringing traces of overt destruction into the museum space, the museum reawakens not only the value we place on the objects in the museum but also our awareness of the museum’s unique role in preserving them. It presents us with the possibility of the alternative. Finally, let us turn to a project in which the museum in question apparently did do the unthinkable – offer up the objects in its collection to an artist, for potential destruction.
