Kabooom 3 – (The Melancholy of Departure)

Kabooom3 by Kristin Sæterdal
Year: 2009

Materials: Wool, Linen

“The Melancholy of Departure” is a title taken from the Painter Georgio De Chirico. I love this title because it is connecting the past with the future and perfectly describes a moment in time. The motif shows an architectural space where something just happened. The space is entirely artificial, it is a maze-like structure with optional ways out, you have to choose the right way, in order to get to the next level.
