‘vorm om; vormt om; vormde om; vormden om; omgevormd’ (loosely translating into reshape; reshapes; reshaped; reshaping) is the title of a vast project I have worked on for over a year in close collaboration with Marieke de Jong.
Together we developed a site specific installation: a drawing you can enter, a three dimensional work that pulls you in with a stream of lines and blots. Once having entered you find yourself in an area where you are forced to let go of certainties.
De Jong usually works three dimensionally as do I on the flat surface. In this experimental project we investigated how our individual visual languages and working methods can be combined, resulting in new work: both a room-filling installation and smaller works in which De Jong reacted three dimensionally to two-dimensional works by Rappard.
