reflective foil, aluminium, cast aluminium/bronze
Annet Gelink Gallery, Amsterdam, 8 September – 13 October 2018
Installation of a wall of yellow ‘prismatic’ reflective foil, a series of reflecting objects associated with long distance road trips – wing mirrors from trucks, rear view mirrors from cars and under-vehicle inspection mirrors used by border security – cast in aluminium and bronze, and two wall based works made from large format display signage, finished in reflective foil. The first introduces the installation with the word ‘abstand’ and the second concludes the exhibition narrative with an enlarged symbol of an arrow pointing to its tail, taken from an icon used to communicate a revolving door.
In an additional project space, the installation ‘Untitled (stand)’ brings together a series of analogue photographs arranged in grouped configurations, pinned to the wall by glass. Depicting various performances for camera, they linger on details: a shoulder, an ear, a hand, light reflecting off prismatic foil. In one group a line of figures is sillouetted holding the primary shapes of road signage.
