Original artwork description:

84x192 cm (64x84 cm each panel) | Filler, oak panels
Multiple installing options

I did this work by pacing back and forth over three panels along the sides. It was produced in Buer Gallery and exhibited as a work in progress installation during my exhibition Pace&Pound 2022.

Pacing back and forth can be a sign of impatience but also of introspection or contemplation. The behaviour is shown by prisoners in their cells or caged animals, but it is also what Professor Balthasar, the animated cartoon hero from my childhood did before he made a great invention (which only ever meant pulling the lever of his fantastic machine).

Pace
Pace is a series of works consisting of two slowly paced tracks in wet filler. The process is repeated 99 times, reminiscent of the 99% of the Occupy movement, which refers to the vast majority without capital from ownership, sometimes defined as the proletariat or the working class. The fight against oppression can be waged with major decisive blows, as well as through many small but repeated steps. The latter is expressed through the tedious work of creating a path where there is none by walking it over and over again.

Materials used:

Filler (coarse and fine) in oak frame
