AS FAR AS I CAN REACH
group exhibition at Quartair, June 2018
curated by Marilou Klapwijk
Liza Wolters' works in the group show AS FAR AS I CAN REACH bring three given elements together that are entirely unrelated at first glance: Quartair's physical space, Liza’s grandmother who's fallen down, and a recent conversation she had with an acquaintance. Through association, these three inputs – the space, the fall and the conversation – feed directly into a new series of works. Instead of reaching for something higher, she aims to concentrate on what is, for now.
The titles of the works refer to the possibilities and impossibilities involved in this. Including all attempts, wishes, desires and expectations.
