Going Away, 2014, folding paper from
books and magazines, on plywood, 220x7x160 cm
moving, nothing is standing in place, every picture is momentary and
ever-changing, every experience, every breath.
About the technique
I love paper, I always did. I am an
obsessive collector of abandoned texts (encyclopedias and abandoned books I
picked up on the street, old magazines and so on).
Working with paper requires attention to
the delicacy, crispness and fragility of the material. My images grow out of
folded fields of paper, reading is transformed into observation.
The need to find a harmonious and
comprehensible world led me to dismantle a world and rebuild an order that is
logical and harmonious for me. In the studio, I take apart the books’ bindings,
peel off their carapace, pull apart their pages, cut the paper strip by strip,
fold the strips and place them in crowded rows in which I leave no space for
My work process entails a meditative
element of wild freedom and strict order, the rhythm of laying out the pieces
of paper creates a powerful sense of movement whose boundaries are broken. The
images burst forth and vanish into the folds of the paper in a way that is
still liberated from having a defined and permanent form.
The colorfulness is also created amid
the monochromatic, the text turns into texture and the word into hues.
