Borders of Nothingness - On the Mend

Galerie XII , 14 Rue des Jardins Saint-Paul, 75004 Paris, France

The first solo show of Dutch Artist Margaret Lansink in Paris. "In Borders of Nothingness, Lansink dwells in the transitional ambiguity of her adult daughter’s decision to suspend contact with her, photographing landscapes and nude women whose disappearing presence raises the same haunting question: is this the moment you were gone? As time passed, Lansink and her daughter reconnected. Lansink then began to revisit and reinterpret images in a physical practice that mirrored their emotional efforts of healing. Working from the Japanese practice of repairing ceramics with gold leaf, she combines her images, severs them, and mends their breaks with gold leaf to put hope into the possibility of a bond that is stronger and more beautiful because it had once been broken."
