Omschrijving werk

I AM INSPIRED BY USELESS THINGS. I AM A COLLECTOR OF USELESS THINGS. An ongoing dialogue with myself concerning the representation of the simple beauty in randomly found objects and how their purity manifests in the space around them. The objects have earned their function of uselessness because of the time and space I have encountered them in. The struggle of re-arranging these objects in a curated setting without the loss of that uselessness in their identity has been my method to fuel the ongoing dialogue. Time and space is what establishes meaning in an object and I do not want to lose that in a space deprived of randomness. The abandoned(maybe even neglected), and mostly industrial materials, are combined together into new forms to express a play between implosion versus an explosion. A sense of vulnerability in their own shape. This is my visual translation on how I perceive the difficulty(the weight) of existence for present day humans.
