Dynamic stillness and yet moving
As a visual artist and musician, Kay Sleking travels between the different ways of expression. Keywords in his work are space dynamics and stillness. The exhibition EXPANSION (2018) is an overview of an inspiring year; the birds and the vistas represent space, dynamism and stillness. Based on the Wadden. However, it stands for any place in the world where seas, lakes, space and birds can be found. They could also serve as a metaphor for the desire for new horizons. A visitor to the exhibition EXPANSION said: “Dynamic stillness. Like the seagulls "hang" in the air; infinitely silent yet moving ”. Another description: "Wow, they look like they could leave the canvas immediately, just staying for reason of friendlyness towards the observer."
