SOMEWHERE is a scintillating spread of gradient hues mirrored across a straight plane. Parallel blocks of colour running back and forth a dark to light palette, are angled against mirror panels to form a folding fan of reflections and shades. The commissioned, site-specific work for the main driveway of the megalopolis ALICE, Singapore, expands on Yves Klein’s hypothesis that colour has a vertiginous quality of sucking one out of his or her reality to another, as the viewer’s eyes travel across light and pigment from different angles and accelerations, depending on how he or she approaches the sculpture by foot or in a moving car. Here, the perpetual disappearance and re emergence of colour through the reflection of one’s surroundings, creates an alternating rhythm of horizon and sensorial space, which morphs throughout the day.
The accordion structure of interspersed mirror and colour create a receding fan of horizon lines that is brought to life by the physical movement of the viewer.
“I have always been interested in the in-between state of matter, be it an object or colour. SOMEWHERE explores that abyss of the ephemera and movement.”
