Gathering & Orientation processes

The city of Genk, Belgium gave me a feeling of disorientation with a fragmented identity.

The map became the way to unite what had been separate as well as the means to gather art,

the city and mining. The map oriented and fixated the style and character of my artistic exploration. The work required a prayer like attitude because of the repetition, concentration and the physical posture of bending on my knees.

The map serves the alchemic purpose of tracing and conciliating opposites, CONIUCTION.
