Nameless Swirls, An Unfolding In Presence. A collaboration of Jennifer Tee with Erwan Maheo, Roy Cerpac & Harmen Liemburg. Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, September 12 – November 23, 2003.

In the fourth room we wanted to create a desert-like atmosphere. Prints were sewn together like parts of a bedouin tent, and used to create a new space inside the museum. While walking through the new ‘corridors’, the camel could be observed through the cuts that were made in the paper.

Source: Russian candy wrapper (camel milk toffee?).

The screen was exposed 1:1 using a this papercut. Aterward, the centerpart of the prints were mostly cut out.
