Innocence Becomes Sharks
Room 110, Rietveld Building
“Innocence Becomes Sharks” is an installation capturing the space between the sea and the shore. I see this area as a metaphor for the contemporary world — groundless, fluid and rapidly changing it affects our lives while we are the accelerators of all the change. Humans have always been enchanted by the seashore — its mysteriousness, power and magic — which evolved into politically, sociologically and historically complex zone. It is becoming evident, that water is approaching our lives with the rising sea level and I am interested in how to find tranquility during this process. The installation is capturing the moment before the crash of the wave — when water retreats unveiling the beauty of the flora and fauna that can only be found in this particular zone. My main aim with this work is to offer a short escape from the chaotic times we are living in— a playful and tranquil moment.
