The Breadth of 104.5°

08.02 – 16.02.2019

104,5° is the angle formed in a water molecule, between the two hydrogen atoms, and the oxygen atom H-O-H. The Breadth of 104.5° is the umbrella title over an ongoing series of works by the artist, dedicated to exploring the ideas and notions around the essentiality of one of the most, if not the most, important element for the existence of life as we know it. Whether it emerges from a molecular scale where the rationale is theonly truth; or touches on our collective cultural outputs where boundaries around reality tend to become more ambiguous and intertwined with it.
