| A collection of photographs exploring spatiality beautifully designed by Mainstudio

With Doorways, visual artist Michiel Kluiters investigates how space (or spatiality) works in photography and how it can become an instrument for narration. A series of photographed spaces open up a conversation and hint at intimate stories. Walls look creaked, roughly textured. They seem to address the hands instead of the eyes: they beg to be touched, to be stroked, to be felt. These spaces look like unfinished buildings or abandoned ruins, still under construction or already in decline. This introduction of a temporal sense – of something that is pointing towards a future completion or to a lingering memory of something that has irrevocably passed – adds to the inherent instability of these works. Are we looking at places that depict a possible dystopian future or the remnants of a utopian past?

Michiel Kluiters (1971) is a Dutch visual artist. In his works he questions and reimagines the space that surrounds us and our relationship with it. Although his approach is quite diverse, photography is a constant. Structural elements of it, such as its reproducibility, its so-called transparency and its way of evoking spatiality are at the foundation of his practice. As playful as Kluiters work might be, his aim is to question our idea of what it means to make the world visible through these reproductions. Or rather use photography’s very existence on the borderline between presence and absence to make something both visible and invisible at the same time.
