I am in recent times projecting images to redraw them. Photographs or frames of videos. A domestic magic lantern, a journey through my YouTube favorites and the fake multicolored pencil game is all that hides the suggestion. I present mural drawings on paper that are at the same time artist books displayed. Smooth paper, without texture, where the light refracts smoothly until the next fold. Basic material as a support, on which I have drawn lines made with colored pencils, pastels and markers. Wall drawings. A large format to induce immersion to the viewer within the surface of the paper. The line is a line of changing colors that travels between areas of light and shadow. Fata morgana. An iridescence of the line as if it were an atmospheric effect or a meteorological phenomenon.
WHY SO SERIOUS?
“We need to develop an open vision, a simple way of seeing that is totally receptive, free of all tendencies to label and judge.” *
Charlotte and Marjolijn share a common interest in spiritual practices and in painting. Specifically for the windowshow_ they investigated the notion of open vision and transparency both in their joint creative process as in the form of the painting itself. They explored a space where commonality would emerge. A space where their ‘pictorial’ identities would be challenged and intertwined.
What you see is what you see, is what you see.

May 31, 2019 (finissage 15:00 – 19:00u) Window_Show with the last work of Sara-Lot van Uum.
The works that will be shown during the Window_show period will be part of Sara-Lot’s current exploration of ‘The Cold Gaze: material diagrammatics as artistic practice.’ In which she uses the diagram as it is understood in scientific usage, but especially as a method for artistic research: providing ways to tap into the ‘blueprints’ of machines that offer us cultural content.

HOW TO TURN A HOUSE INTO A BOOK is the response to a window, an address, a sleeping space, a working space, curtains and doors, tense wires of past and future curtains, hanging, a door with a lock with a curtain, a bed with a door as a frame, the sound of the blinds, a made up entrance, with holes on top of doors, three ladders, cream, pink and pistachio green, pipes disappearing, the heat from underneath. The work is a matter of documentation as translation, of the traces of use, wear and presence.
