Denis van Baren‘s piles of books are explicit metaphors of the fragility of knowledge as well as the disruption of our cultural references. Placed in a precarious equilibrium, our collective memory is subject to the laws of gravity.
The instability of these constructions and their chaotic environment that are represented by piles in open spaces, as well as dynamic perspectives, lights and shadows put the emphases on a transitional state, a swing towards a new (dis-)order. Through this fall, the paradox is that knowledge becomes again accessible, with a possible return to the sources, a recovered freedom that stemmed from chaos.
