Figures - Part II

2019

Figures is a ten year project started in late 2017. Can the title of a painting be used as a door to enter the work, or to enter a meditative state where viewing the work is easier and more direct? In this project, each of the large paintings on textile comes with an audio file to be listened to on headphones while sitting on a bench in front of the work. In the file which is usually 10 or 15 minutes long, the artist is walking around and saying the title of the work out loud. In this way, an exhibition of 4 works takes about an hour to be fully experienced.
