Drywall Wonders Between Heaven and Earth

Installation View St James Cavallier Valletta, Malta. August 2015

The installation – designed by Tom Van Malderen –  is based on the principle of a contemporary drywall structure and delves into the idea of what might be on “the other side”.

The accompanying projected text suggests stories hidden within and beyond the wall, and sparks a dialogue between the inner and outer, structure and ornament, reality and appearance.

“Behind the wall, an alarm goes off.
Behind the wall, a coffee is brewed.
Behind the wall, the smell of chicken and garlic is lingering on.
Behind the wall, the one-eyed kid is playing by himself (…)”
