Michiel Kluiters - Doorways
|Author||M. Kluiters; M. Barnas; S. Humblet|
|Publisher||Jap Sam Books|
With ‘Doorways’, visual artist Michiel Kluiters investigates how space (or spatiality) works in photography and how it can become an instrument for narration. A series of photographed spaces open up a dialogue and hint at intimate stories. Walls appear roughly textured, seeming to address the tactile rather than visual sense. The pictured spaces look like unfinished buildings or abandoned ruins, either still under construction or already in decline. Kluiters instils these images with a temporal sense, leaving an unanswered promise of eventual fulfilment or a lingering memory of an irrevocable epoch. We must wonder, is this a possible dystopian future or the remnants of a utopian past?
