3. Kathy & Moralespart 2, 2015

Digital print on art paper

 

These two works concern the intimacy between two people:  Kathy and Morales.

The first is simply called Kathy & Morales. These two paintings were made in symmetrical coexistence. They were photographed and then printed on fine art paper, each accompanied by a text. The first print reads: ‘Kathy sits on Morales’ face’. The second one: ‘He trusts her’. After the print was made, the painting was destroyed. Only one copy of each print exists, just as there would have been only one unique painting. The painting only serves to produce the print and has no reason for its existence without its accompanying text. It has been reduced to an illustration. With the sculpture, the second part of the story takes a bad turn. It is called Kathy letting go. It is a (maiden) white sculpture made of plaster and steel, dripped over with yellowish varnish. If this suggests Kathy’s urine, it would indicate that she had completely violated Morales’ trust.

The physical form of these works seems to have little to do with the story behind them. Their form should thus be regarded as a method. A written love story doesn’t have a physical form; it’s created in the mind, through text. I only offer the reader an indication of what might have happened in this short, intimate moment between Kathy and Morales.The complete story and what ultimately happened to them should, however, be constructed in the mind of the viewer.
