In Between Presence and Absence, 2
2018, Handmade paper casting using discarded paper
I paper cast, using pulp made from discarded paper, everyday vessels that I found around me to visualize the emptiness in our daily life. By casting each physical object with nothing within, I articulated the essential concept of the container which is the space inside it. I filled up the empty space of the gallery with those empty white vessels and, in so doing, visualized what is non-visual, filling up an empty space with emptiness, articulating a non-describable concept, the inseparability of presence and absence.
