Sara Vermeylen explores the tipping point between stoicism and frenzy. Her large, oxygenated drawings portray the energy of that momentum. Unique to Vermeylen's style as an artist is her energy. The artist combines joy, power and body origami. Primitive yet playful.
"Birth, death, weddings and war", Will Varley once sang.
"Nothing has changed", Wislawa Szymborska answered.
The work in the vitrine starts out empty on Wednesday. A blank page, like a newborn baby. On its mute body, Sara Vermeylen wants to outline the enthralling absurdity of man. By Friday the paper will have a proverbial face and rise to its height. As the artwork constructs a wheel of time up and through Saturday, while balancing lust for love with lust for annihilation, its own deconstruction will already have started. By Sunday,
nothing will suggest a 10-meter drawing ever embodied the space.
