UN

 

   a circle, a line, a cross

 

   143 folds

 

   never, nowhere

 

responding rain

 

   hits of sunshine

 

   undecided photographs

ON

 

   fungi

 

   burn our wings

 

   when the fire and the rock

 

   a vale of desolation

 

   what is behind that curtain

 

   portrait memory

 

   seeing a rainbow

The work '143 folds' was made site-specific for the arthouse 019 in Ghent, made on 27-28.07.2018.

 

It consists of a cyanotype of 4,5x7m made by making 143 folds on the roof of the location for 2 hours long using the sun to change the color of the fabric into a deep blue. The cyanotype was made by accident and the discontrol of creating a composition.

 

The lightment proces was fixed by washing it in the river next to the building. After this the wet fabric was pulled up the flag pole to dry.

 

I would like to thank Bieke Criel, Michiel De Cleene, Koba De Meuter, Nele Dieleman and Valentijn Goethals for supporting this process.
