Preludes

2010 (installation view)

carbon on paper, 146 x 120 cm

Tent gallery, Edinburgh

 

 

“Preludes” are both the remnants and the counter-images of “Narcissus”. Functioning as abstract representations of spatial events, the two mirrored drawings consist of traces made with carbon paper. Carbon is here a reference to the idea of the residue.


The work was presented in Tent Gallery in Edinburgh in 2009. As the title suggests, ”Preludes” refer to an introduction to a larger orchestration. The two drawings are placed diametrically in the gallery space, one mirroring the other. Together they reverberate in space.
