Traces of a Supposed Chain of Mountains, 2018

installation consisting out of a mural, a collection of books, and a series of drawings


For this Installation I focussed on the way we use language to grasp a space. I find it fascinating how we have given names to all that surrounds us, how we’ve attached words to places. The idea that there are library’s full of atlases in which every square meter of the earth is written down is very fascinating to me.

I think this way of using language to grasp a space especially comes forward in mapmaking and atlases: all the names that we have given to the earth are noted down in these books. Within this installation, I examined this notion of naming space by looking at the drawings and texts in my collection of atlases.
