‘Breeze’ is an installation with 13 slide projectors. It is appr. 4x4m. These thirteen slide projectors installed accross the space project onto suspended sheets of tracing paper.
This project was installed at NEST, Den Haag during the group exhibition "Some Things Perishable" , curated by Charlott Markus.
‘Some things perishable’ was a short lived exhibition, 4 hours in which a mark and reminder is left that most things perish, vanish or evaporate; even though we, as humans, leave marks and traces behind to be found, to be considered and to be reflected on.
'Some things perishable' has the ambition to be a poetic but confrontational experience. Life and things disappear but will also reappear in different shapes, creating marks and traces.
