RETWEET - Confusion
collab with artist Eva van der Zand
Last summer a man threw a brick through a window, shattering the privacy of my visual studio in Amsterdam. A desk, a chair, a photographic darkroom covered in glass pieces.
I asked Eva to meet me in my darkroom studio at NDSM. Eva is a glass artist and in the darkroom we saw our work's potential to fuse.
Sometimes things don’t fuse. This creates a tension, things can crack and material can even explode. Things can unfuse, diffuse or get confused.
With this work we want to create a moment of reflection. Images are seen through broken glass and rearview mirrors.
Fragility and strength fuse as the materials invite different perspectives.
How to fuse?
How to bring the personal in a bigger context for an exhibition?
How to reveal your personal stories in a safe way?
How to let the visitor fuse?
