Eke Krug – Series #5 – Bits and pieces – Just looking

Sometimes in our life, we have in between time, a period of waiting, while everything is functioning in a normal way. These months, we live in between two homes, comfortable, waiting for the moment we can unpack our boxes and our new home can be set up. Busy with our new live, looking back on the past eight year in Norway and reminiscence of the future. And in the mean time, waiting, dreaming, looking. Not only with the eyes, but with the whole range of senses, including the third eye. This piece is about the period I am in and the way I experience it. It is about feelings and sensations, about being part of a bigger plan…. without borders, with endless possibilities and with new horizons, waiting to be explored. That’s why this piece has no borders, where the other four pieces of my series have. It just doesn’t feel right to frame it, I hope I can hold this feeling, just looking.

Hand dyed silk and cotton scraps – torn edges of scarves – lace – all kinds of threads
