Produced on the occasion of Jason Hendrik Hansma’s exhibition A Centre Cannot Hold at Memphis, Linz, 22 July — 17 September, 2020.

“Stretched across a white-walled room with grey concrete floors, a chiffon curtain billows from the wind of an open window. Past the window, leaves on a tree flutter in the wind. The curtain stretches from the ceiling to the floor and across the length of the room. Underneath the curtain, is a small, reflective strip on the tiled floor. The sun from the window and from a path leading to another room lights the space and the curtain.”

With a text by Jo-ey Tang. Designed by Christophe Clarijs.
