"Inkijk: Re-interpreted by Sancho Silva"
2002-08-17 until 2002-09-29
De Appel at SKOR
Amsterdam, , NL

Sancho Silva’s works function as instruments revealing elements of surprise and mystery. Not only on a metaphorical but also on a literal level his work appears as a ‘container,’ which detains and dissolves both the viewer and the viewer’s gaze.

The Inkijk is a skeletal structure, resembling a conventional representation of a ‘house’, yet lacking both the space and internal characteristics of a house/home.  The Inkijk comprises particular physical characteristics, which highlight certain dualities and specificities; interior/exterior, in/out, public/private, watching/being watched, looking in/looking out, zooming in/zooming out, hiding/exposing. The premise that similarities and contradictions overlap and superimpose upon each other in this space offers ground for the simultaneous voyeurism and surveillance mechanisms inherent in the works of Sancho Silva.
