UV-sensitive dye on cotton voile, exposed on site
280 x 500 cm


In front of the gallery’s entrance, I mounted a textile membrane, a kind of curtain - neither an inside nor an outside, but a layer of in between. The textile is cotton voile, the kind of fabric that can be used as a mosquito net in front of windows in the summer - a barrier penetrable by light and air, but not solids. The curtain was treated with a UV sensitive dye and exposed in the space – in this way capturing the ambient light of the room as a 1:1 contact print. The viewer might view the curtain as a form of barrier, separating the gallery space from its exterior or experience it as augmenting the intimacy of the space behind it.
