Pigment and casein paint on wood, wall drawing, steel. Variable dimensions
Inspired by a particular type of japanese folding screen with the same title, this series of installations are created primarily with the imprint of the snap line constructing surfaces that recall textiles. The wall panels, paper rubbed with pigment and folded to objects and steel poles produce a sense of gravity and layers of surfaces. The topic of the original folding screens is the absence of the owner of depicted kimonos, and the works revolve around this absence of the body. All versions of this work plays out the relation between line and surface, the colours and the voids between the elements of the installation.
This version of the installation consists of a large chalkline wall drawing, combined with 3 panels with pigment works and numerous steel poles in the very tall space.
Now is always also a little of yesterday and tomorrow
