Into the Void 2010-2017

The starting point for the series Into the Void is the concept of ‘voidness’ in the literal sense, as well as in the capacity of mental space perception. In this series Ziach tries to represent emptiness, in particular the way it presents itself in the spaces of railway stations, deserted and anonymous.The images constructed also as it were reflect a dreamed reality, such as the one represented in the surrealist paintings of the Italian painter Giorgio De Chirico. Images of tangible urban/architectonic shapes transform into seemingly abstract ‘environments´ in which the light brings about a metamorphosis and creates a new perception and as such emphasises the emptiness. In this series man is invisible, but one does still feel a human presence. Translation: Hanny Keulers
