A film about collecting; about the glass fossil; about consolation and about procreation. A pale face directs its voice towards the audience and states four assertions distorted by emotions. At the same time, delicate cracks in the mask allow a foreshadowing of that silence, which ultimately wraps all of us in its nostalgic warmth.

10 Boxes; 26 x 31 x 4 cm; 2018 When ceating large scale murals with spray cans, there’s no way around the usage of ink nozzles or spray caps. Once a nozzle clogs, the spray cap must be discarded – or, if it is a particularly beautiful specimen, be archived.
Etching on copper; 26 x 31 cm; edition of 20; each sheet is hand-coloured; 2018 An etching plate formatted identically to the 3D boxes helps to create two-dimensional equivalents. The 20 pieces of the edition are individually hand-coloured and become, sheet by sheet, a well connected arrangement of colourful spray caps. The nozzle looked at as a micro painting.
