Egied Simons (NL)
On top of the roof of a bus, which has been converted into a mobile darkroom, a big lens is aimed at the sky. The moving images of passing clouds, trees, parts of buildings, overhead wires and birds are projected directly on a table in de vehicle. The passengers, seated in the moving darkroom, get to experience the city in an entire new way. With his project ‘Cita Morgana’, Egied Simons converts reality to a spatial, cinematic experience. He creates a interplay of depth, compaction and the subtle movements of objects with the sky as a background.
As a sculptor, Egied Simons (1958) is interested in the most perishable materials. He is concerned with structures, stratification, openness and compaction in motion.
