Funding no thing-ness reached over 100%
The crowdfunding (via VoordeKunst) I started to self-publish my upcoming publication no thing-ness has reached 100%. I'm very, very thankful to everyone who has supported this dream. I'm also very excited to finish the publication and have it printed.
Halfway the year 2019 I was artistically exhausted and my artistic practice was at a stop. Through meditation and boredom I started creating sculptures to photograph in my studio. I kept doing this during the COVID19-crisis and 9 months later it’s a new project: no thing-ness.
No thing-ness basically resolves around the gaze. Objects or situations become something when they’re looked at. You form a relationship with it. This happens with our eyes, but also with the mechanical eye of the camera: it freezes time and space to capture that moment. And by doing so, the object are no longer nothing. These works playfully appeal into the imagination of the viewer and thus allow for a relationship to arise between the viewer and the subject.
