a grain of sand as an island / karen moser
13 november - 23 december 2016 
vernissage zondag 13 november 2016 vanaf 15:00h

In her first solo show in Belgium, A Grain of Sand as an Island, Karen Moser investigates how multiplication, 
sharing and imagining is linked to our emotional and financial value system.

The title of the show A Grain of Sand as an Island implies a repetitive pattern, opening a field of relations.
Through shifts in space and meaning Moser talks about different principles of singularity and plurality.

..............................................................................................................

This space has a door, a window and some corners. This space has two
doors, in fact. The second is mirroring the first. Four and a half walls are
echoing each other.

Next to door one is a letterbox, through which Pointer enters. The rhythm of
posting does not correspond to the delivery, and therefore shifts towards
an irregular scheme. The moments of sending and arriving are piling up
in a corner of the space, like the letters of a maniac nobody responds to.

Four and a half walls are echoing each other. On the first floor, door two
exists as well, and instead of door one there is a window. A small multi-
purpose table stands slightly off-centre. I think, I thought, I saw you there
investigates how similarities of spaces are constructed by circumstances
and by our perception.

One of the walls carries four frames entitled Edition 1//1 – 4/1. The image,
a photogram created with masks in an analogue process, is framed with
passe-partouts, revealing the whole, the half, a third and a quarter.

Language knows singular and plural. Singular may only exist as abstract
object or condition. My description of a singular object is different from
yours. “I” and “you” is something else for everyone. Are they therefore a
form of the plural too?
What we share makes us similar. We enter the space through the same
door. The space has two doors, in fact.
