Acrylic on paper and plastic, 13 x 9 cm, 2012
Last summer Karen Vermeren visited the very active fault line where two tectonic plates collide, the Pacific Plate and the Caribbean Plate in Nicaragua. Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are frequently changing the surface of the earth.
The book is used as an exhibition space. Transparent pages are shaping space. They function as sequels and open up windows to the insides of the volcanic ridge and the slow process of a fault line. By turning pages the cyclic changes of the earth in time become visual. Vermeren confronts the viewer with the uncontrollable origin of every landscape.
