Vocabulary of the Void, 2017




In Vocabulary of the Void I examine the way we relate to immense, unknown spaces. I am fascinated by the ways in which we try to grasp these spaces, how wea try to give a human measure to the unmeasurable. We have named every mountain, we have dissected every insect, every tree is catalogued and classified with similar types. There are library’s full of atlases in which every square meter of the earth is written down.


Vocabulary of the Void is an installation in which I combine different media. The installation exists out of a variation of works: both a performance and a video as well as drawings and a publication. In these works the attempt to grasp a landscape is central.
