fragile Life

This art object represents Life and all its contradictions; emptiness – fullness, darkness-brightness movement – stillness. Birth(the lower white thread beneath the painting. Human Life in this world (the painting). Death (the upper white thread) and Life itself (the Frame). The object is meant to hang freely to emphasise the constant movement.

The details of this work can be found in the ‘detail gallery’ below. As you can see are more loose white threads, all representing the most important social factors in our life. Another detail which is easy to spot, is the state of the painting itself. While the paper was still wet with paint, I fold and ‘mold’ it, to give it that decayed look. The paper with a structure like linen was just perfect for it.
