"ENCOUTER"

location: Empty Stoorefront , Den Helder
period: September, October 2018
description: Print on textile with backlight,
commission: Kunsthal 45 , Den Helder

The photograph is made on the second floor of the building, exactly above the spot where it is placed. With the light shining from behind, the photographed space shines in the darkness. The light radiating from the back makes that you can see the huge empty store. It makes the photograph look like a small cabin, floating in a vast emptiness.

On the photograph, a woman and a man are looking at each other. Although it looks as if the man and the woman stand in the same room, she is only present as a reflection. Where is the woman standing ? Why are they not together ?
