Black. The Wall. (seen on the left)
In 1915 Kazimir Malevich painted his ‘Black Square’ on canvas. He wanted to break with the current art of imitating reality and only showed this very reality itself: the materialization of an idea. ‘Black. The Wall’ goes a step further and shows less than reality itself. It shows the nothing. The idea has not been materialized, but merely visualized. It can be experienced as anti-light.
Hack. The Wall.
A wall defines a space, it carries a load, provides security, or is decorative. It is also a canvas of time, showing us traces of life and decay. In ‘Hack. The Wall’ the wall is both canvas and material. With that, both change. The gallery, represented by Casper Faassen, acquired the artwork.
