Germaine Kruip – Black Circle at Sea

"Light is like a piece of cloth. You put it over something that is already there."

Germaine Kruip – Black Circle at Sea

Light, (architectural) spaces and the interaction between the art work and the audience is crucial to the work of Germaine Kruip. Almost all of her work deals with perception wherein she approaches the eye as an optical instrument, as a tool, especially in her recent works.

For her newly commissioned piece ‘Black Circle at Sea’, she builds on a scene from a filmic theatre play she developed at EMPAC (Experimental Media & Performing Arts Center, New York). A black round shadow is being projected just above the horizon. She uses an abstract language here to play with the perception of what is being depicted. ‘Black Circle at Sea’ has been developed in collaboration with TAAK.
