Echo Chamber

Murals or Wall Art are a popular category on TrekEarth. Usually murals are to be found on blind walls in the city. Today’s presentation shows you a mural inside a museum.
“Het OOG” (The EYE) is a kind of courtyard inside the museum. Part of the courtyard is a curved wall standing on a floor with a few centimetres water.

Navine G. Khan-Dossos (1982) occupies “Het Oog” for the creation of a mural, Echo Chamber.
During half a year visitors could literally see the work being created. When I visited the museum, the work was finished.

◙ Navine Khan-Dossos’ painting practice is based on a rigorous training in Islamic art and History of Art. She is constantly dealing with the complexities of Orientalism and Other, in both historical and contemporary contexts. She has developed a form of geometric abstraction that merges the traditional Aniconism of Islamic art with the algorithmic nature of the interconnected world we live in. The subject of her work is often the conflicted and complex relationship of Islam to the West, that is an inescapable and vital subject to be dealing with today. (website van Abbe Museum)

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
