Cloudspace, por Roca Gallery

A visual exploration on space.

A reflected image is fascinating due to its ephemeral quality. The reflected image depends on the presence of the mirrored object, spatially and temporally. Metaphorical meanings of mirrors are diverse and contradictory. In behavioral science, reflection is regarded as a sign of intelligence and the capacity for abstract thought. Culturally and historically the mirror symbolizes—alongside vanity—self-awareness, wisdom and truth. In ancient cultures a mirror stood for the image of the soul, as Celtic women were buried with their mirrors. In ancient Egypt the words for mirror and for life were identical.”

Sabine Fellner, art critic on Cloudspace

What are the borders of space? How can we push the borders? These questions have been the point of departure for my work since the beginning. They have formed part of a dialogue with myself that has resulted in an exploration of whether or not what I see is real and what is in fact behind what I am seeing. By questioning the limits of space and perception I challenge the viewers of my work to engage in their own questioning of how they understand and interpret the world around us.

The Cloudspace Pavilion—commissioned by collector Herbert Liaunig—was the starting point for deeper research on mirrored spaces. Huge photographs of real spaces, which are blurred and abstract are the characteristics of this body of work. Again, the work is about light, solidity, a play with perception, and opening up new perspectives by leveraging and shifting spatial boundaries.
