Orbiter (exhibition)

“Orbiter” featured new works developed and created during a residency at ARE Holland in Enschede, Netherlands. The show consisted of a large-scale mixed-media work on paper, a photographic narration (see “Orbiter”, the book) and a series of objects. 

Each and every one of us is an orbiter, a tiny particle amongst others, dragged, pulled, pushed by manifold forces. We spin, we rush, we fly along our trajectories, day by day, night by night. Sometimes we collide, we crash. Sometimes we change course, sometimes we are urged to. But we always continue on another orbit, leaving marks, making signs, radiating heat of our fears and desires.

During my residency at ARE Holland I followed the orbits of an observer mission, tracing and collecting images and artefacts. By transforming the findings of daily walks into visual narratives – into drawings, photos and objects – I tried to capture the one and many stories of life out there, woven by everyday loops on countless orbits.
