Dutch artist and designer Lizan Freijsen examines transformation and time, in which the unwanted gains significance. She meticulously documents a form of urban nature, classifying stains in a subjective order by giving names and categories to this pervasive phenomenon of slow changes and growth processes in our everyday surroundings. Manifesting the same way in many places in the world, the stain reads like a palimpsest – a layered and partly blotted-out history of a precise spot. Freijsen’s search for traces of moisture, fungus, and decay in the public space resulted in an extensive photographic archive, which she also uses as inspiration for her textile-based practice.
