Etienne Gros’s “Les Mousses”

We have never understood what the purpose of a sponge is: it scratches up and lifts your body’s dirt and then just moves it around to somewhere else. The same goes for feather dusters and dust. We simply refuse to use them. We, on the contrary, will scratch ourselves with our own hands and we do not clean up any dust that there may be. But the artist Etienne Gros’s sponges have something special to them, and while we do not want to ponder exactly how he came up with this idea, it is a kind of special cinnamon, pearl for the eyes. They say that wrinkles are beautiful – we think that those extra kilos one puts on are too – and even more so if it is made in such a simple manner as with a bottom-scratching sponge. See for yourselves and enjoy.
