Past future perfect – 2018 – ongoing
Installation, mixed media on paper, steel, 350cm x 250cm

Past future perfect is a tense used to express an ‘idea’ in the past. That an action or event was predicted, planned, promised, expected or obliged to have been done before a certain time in the future, or before/while another action/event happened in the future of past, regardless of the fact that the idea has not yet been realized.

This installation is part of a series of works, which touch upon current political issues such as migration & European border controls. The works not only reflect the political status quo, but rather invite the beholder to perceive current circumstances from a stand point of the past, and how these have developed ever since.
