Hole 1 (black)

MDF, acrylic colour, water | 50 × 50 × 95 cm | 2022

At a glance, the glossy black square in the middle looks like a painted surface. Some think it is synthetic resin, or even the touch screen of a digital device. When the viewer realises that it is in fact the dark surface of water, it is only up to his or her imagination to determine how deep it actually is. This uncertainty embodies the character of water as a place where our sense of space is dissolved and nullified, bringing emotions of relief and fear simultaneously.
