For the exhibition Si.Si.Spex I made a mural (photo below left). The image was inspired by the play Endgame by Samuel Beckett. By making a mural right before the exhibition, I wanted to challenge myself by doing something that could also fail miserably. Temporarily, on the wall itself. I linked the scene from Endgame to what was going on for me at that moment: my desire to coincide with myself.

After the exhibition, I painted the wall white again (photo below right). I took a photo of it and had it printed in large format. On that large print, I then made another work, putting the NOW as the next layer on top of the earlier works.
