"What Everyday Walls Must Do" 1999

Solo exhibition in HEDAH, Maastricht
wood, plasterboard, paraffin
12 x 5 x 3.2 meter

For this exhibition, the space is renovated into three areas of different size. As the size of the rooms decreases, the mushroom grid increases accordingly. The viewer will zoom in on the work, as it were, by sight.

The difference in the mushroom sizes evoke the illusion of space, whereby the surface of the walls seems to disappear.

The title of the work is derived from physics. Viewed scientifically, walls not only function as partitions or boundaries, they can also assume less of a material character.
