This work is based on a personal parting rite:
I have made a list of unspoken farewells and wrote letters of different lengths to these once close persons. With a fine brush dipped in water without using pigment, I wrote the words on delicate japanese washi paper. They disappeared upon drying.
After the evaporation, the paper‘s structure has been altered; the performative act of writing turns into a sculptural gesture. The scripture becomes an illegible trace, which creates a tension in dialogue with the work which is not resolved.
