Passage is an ongoing work that consists of various machine knitted fabrics transferred from digital photographs, snapshots made with a mobile phone camera, of urban asphalt from various cities where I do or have lived and worked. In Passage solid terrain, the hard and damaged public ground becomes converted into intimate soft structures. In an exhibition, the knits are repetitively folded and carefully arranged on tables, racks or pedestals. In the form of a tangible ‘walk’, the knits are presented by one or more performing ‚flaneur’ unfolding endless arrays of combinations, overlaps, colors, shapes and patterns. The only information the audience receives is the name of the city and the percentage of used fibrers. Passage is a fluid index - and a versatile object that oscillates between cloth for fashion, archival document,  or folding map. Drifting is practiced as a visual and haptic exercise of groundlessness and belonging - a kind of micro-perspective on artist’s life in contemporary realities and territories.​​​​​​​

The knits were produced at various knitting factories and in collaboration with the TextielLab in the Textielmuseum Tilburg, Upnoon Knit Lab, Seoul, Sabrina Weigt, Berlin
