THE WEIGHT OF

 

Deurbreek. Hou op kla. Dra die gewig. Van sus of so wees of nie-wees nie. Ordentlikheid. Vrees. Wees jouself. Maar. Nie so nie. Taal. Steun. Mamma. Ek skel. Neusie verby. Meer lighartig. Asseblief. Waar is die pret. En tyd ? Altyd. Die toekoms. Altyd. Wens. Vir eendag. 

 

Clutter. Expectations. To justify. The year after. On Behalf of. Heart. Bearing. Your childhood room. Yellow. A Minuet. A connection. Gravity. You. Me. An apology. Details. Laughter. Movement. Worry. A Mess. A sensation. The Abyss. Motion. Distance. Joy. Fiction. Friction. Discomfort. Endlessness. Uncertainty. Thinking. Breaking. Not knowing. Silence. Your favourite ‘jam’. The Physical. But.

 

 

Provoking a certain sense of un-easiness, each work carries a certain weight / ‘pull’ / ‘energy’: a weight of motion - an enticement to engage and discover. The open- endedness of the non-specific image is like starting a sentence and then leaving the room. There is discomfort and fascination, something changes.

 

Die ewige ongemak van ‘n stom uitdrukking met eindelose moontelikhede wat skuil: soms onder in ‘n glas, soms langs die oop pad, soms onder jou. Sekerheid is illusie. En wie weet of daar iemand / iets in beheer is. Dalk is jy bloot ‘n kans, ondersteun deur die lug bo en die grond onder. Ek dink dit is beauty. Waarom is dit nie die storie waarmee ons grootword nie?
