"Obstructed Portal" Tankwa Artscape Residency South Africa 2018








Obstructed Portal

A characterful old door with its frame is placed in the Tankwa. The doorframe faces the silhouette of the Cederberg, the door is open. On the inside of the doorframe rusty wire is weaved across the frame from top to bottom. All kind of rusty pieces found on the ground are fastened to the net of rusty wire.
The woven wire in the doorframe becomes a metaphor for our entangled minds, created by the chaotic overstimulation of our senses in urban life.
In a quiet environment like the Tankwa Karoo we can make a conscious effort to step aside from our busy minds and engage our senses to experience silence and the fullness of emptiness.
