In January 2020, South African artist currently based in Berlin, Tayla Lubinsky, hosted a solo exhibition called Marble Dust. It is this exhibition that she unpacks during her Spirals session talk titled Permanence, Decay and the Politics of Post-preservation. During the talk, Lubinsky takes us through the journey of how this project came to materialize.
