Magaret Lansink: Borders of Nothingness - On the Mend

* New or Sealed *

  • £70.00


In Borders of Nothingness, Dutch photographer Margaret Lansink (b.1961) explores the transitional ambiguity of her adult daughter's decision to cease all contact with her, photographing landscapes and naked women whose fleeting presence questions the same torments. : is this the moment when you left?

Over time, Lansink and her daughter reconnected in an attempt to mend their relationship. Lansink then revisited and reinterpreted Borders of Nothingness to materially reflect their emotional healing efforts.

Inspired by the Japanese method of repairing broken ceramics with gold leaf, she regroups her images, tears them up and then re-glues them with gold leaf to give hope to the possibility of recreating a bond of gold.
