Period: 5/06/2013 - 30/07/2013

In Time Sheet, bed linen and crushed mirrorglass seem fixed in a static composition. At the same time, different forces bring this precarious arrangement into motion. The force of gravity pulling the sheet down, creating folds. A game of light and dark, casting shadows and reflections. Allusions to the experience of time. Time Sheet will be installed at Kortingsluiting [exhibition space]  in early June and available for viewing until 30 July 2013. The installation is viewed from the street through a glass door. The space is lit daily from 10am to 10pm. Time Sheet was first featured at Begehungen 9 Contemporary Art Festival in Chemnitz, Germany 2012.
