Ajours, (Villandry)

Solo exhibition

Curator: Anton van Gemert

The title of the installation is 'Ajours, (Villandry)', a reference to the village of Villandry in France near Tours, where there are a number of Renaissance gardens. These Renaissance gardens have a particular design structure, wherein I saw parallels with my own work. For example, I previously made a work, "Folding Schemes", in which I sketched a number of ways and principles for folding a sheet of paper. You could see a sheet of paper as a kind of projection of space. Once you fold it, you recreate it spatially.
