Mara Standaert

In Veranderende Tijden probeer ik de (on)zichtbare patronen van het vergankelijkheidsproces en de impact hiervan in beeld te brengen. Eenmaal ik werd geconfronteerd met de vergankelijkheid van mijn familie, besefte ik dat we allemaal maar een klein stofje zijn op de rok van het universum.

"Ik bekijk de ruimte als een lege kamer die ik volledig naar mijn verlangen kan invullen. Zo veel en benauwd mogelijk. Dit vergelijk ik met herinneringen van de kermis; een plek waar iedereen samenkomt om even de gedachten te verzetten en zich te amuseren, die volstaat met kraampjes en attracties dat het publiek lokt, waar zich oneindig veel impulsen afspelen.

Resting Beauty,
See a space. See the faded cracks in concealed words. See the pieces that rose beyond flower fields. See the vanished faces left behind. See the raindrops found in engraved days.
