I love art that presents itself to you according to its own logic. Art that has a hook in reality and then stretches your understanding of that reality. The best works of art make you bend your head towards them, shaking it in disbelief, wondering how the hell they turned out like this. But these works are completely sovereign and have just broadened your understanding of what is possible by a few millimetres.
What does Ricardo van Eyck confront us with? Is it an umbrella, a screen, or a steel foldable sheet that shows traces of contact and communication? This time around, it is not scratched into the interior of a cosy pre-historic cave, but entrusted to a contemporary range of stainless steel. Children's drawings, bacteria under a microscope and scars caused by burns echo across the surface. A large screen transmitting out signals that are no longer understood by anyone, but continues to do so against its better judgement.
