'Silent Acquaintances in Solitude' reflects on the transparency of the human-object border and questions the separability of the one from the other. The art work is presented in a white cube, which is entered one by one. Visitors are supplied with noise-reduction headphones and felt shoes. The purpose-designed cube allows for natural top lighting. In a silent acquaintance, the visitor is confronted with transparent sculptures which resonate with human-ness, for example, through the growing of hair, echoes of anatomy such as the spine and the seemingly light movement of the sculptures, which is caused by the design of the form as well as changes in the surrounding air. The art work also reverberates with object-ness in the temperature and the fixed form of different pieces. The transparency of the sculptures enables them to take up space without occupying it, allowing the viewer to choose their own level of closeness and a way to look through the objects, inside of them, or at their skin. These possibilities allow for the experience of different ways of seeing that which presents itself as transparent, yet spatially precise.
