Black Zen

Black Zen was an exhibition at the end of my residency at LEO XIII, in Tilburg in 2014. At this time I was mostly writing short stories. Some of the darker ones I combined inside a booklet with the same title that was available at the exhibition, and the more lighter ones I spread out around the space. Most of these last ones ended up in my first collection of short stories, called the Name of the Sun is Yellow, that was published by Rollo Press in 2016.

I bought some bags of confetti on the day of the presentation to make the exhibition with, these colorful dots, like rising, falling entities, made up the DNA of this exhibition, and nicely blended in with the paint splatters, the furniture, and the high and low stories in the space.

Here’s a bit more info the show.
