AS FAR AS I CAN REACH
Liza Wolters' works in the group show AS FAR AS I CAN REACH bring three given elements together that are entirely unrelated at first glance: Quartair's physical space, Liza’s grandmother who's fallen down, and a recent conversation she had with an acquaintance. Through association, these three inputs – the space, the fall and the conversation – feed directly into a new series of works. Instead of reaching for something higher, she aims to concentrate on what is, for now.
The titles of the works refer to the possibilities and impossibilities involved in this. Including all attempts, wishes, desires and expectations.
In order of appearance*:
1 A Certain Someone told me that if I want to get things done, I need to start living like a Great Athlete. I decided not to (for now).
