Spaces Between Us . 2004
laminated black and white photocopies, embroidery with red thread
Spaces Between Us is a work in progress, started in 2004. The rough material comes from images collected from daily newspapers. The space between the people is marked with red embroidery.
The work was presented for the first time during the Arco Art Fair in Madrid (2/2004) as an outdoor intervention. Laminated black and white photocopies, embroidered with red thread were exhibited on a tree in the center of Madrid. A tree functioned as exhibition space.
The second presentation took place in Rotterdam during the festival 'De wereld van Witte de With' (9/2004). The artist herself was present at the location. She wore a dress that she had designed especially for this occasion. The dress was covered with aluminium objects refering to the shapes of the 'between spaces'.
People passing by were asked to make the artist 'less heavy' by taking one of the objects from her, as to wear it themselves.
