fabric and wax, ExBunker, Utrecht 2019
An arrangement of eight parts made of fabric and wax.
These works are made especially for the ExBunker, in Utrecht. The work asks questions about protection, vulnerability and absence.
On the walls there are four texts that belong to the images. This is one of them:
Thin and light they are, almost collapsing
under this unbearable concrete cloak.
Under the semi-transparent shell
cross veins and folds
by bluffs and bumps.
The wax does not seem alive, but reacts like skin:
with time, her color changes,
it is soft and pliable when heated
with the cold stiff.
