Noch Nicht – continual ink drawing – 2017
46W x 2400L cm
Noch Nicht was created for the Double Bind 2017 group show, in response to the artwork of Nick Waddell and his exploration of the German philosopher, Heidegger, Phenomenology and Temporality.
Noch Nicht translates as “Not Yet” or “Yet To Be” and Heidegger argues that the nature of ‘being’ is such that a “not yet” quality remains constantly as something which is always still outstanding, exhibiting a constant unfinished quality.
To that end, the artwork displays the incomplete, working edge of a single convoluting line; the void that is yet to be filled and the rolled up transparent layers of what has been.
