DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO LOVERS / 2015 / soft pastel (black ivory) on paper / 51,5 x 81,5 cm

This drawing is a result of a performance which took place in 2011. The aim of the performance was to find out the distance between two lovers when they are standing next to each other in a landscape at a distance that allows them to just see each other. The distance between these two vanishing points is translated into a black square. The distance of 750 meters is compressed into a surface of 8 x 8 cm. This implies a layered drawing of 117,18 layers of 8 cm lines every millimetre.
