“La vie est un rêve, moi un miroir.” it says on the small wooden case that Wido Blokland puts in our Gallery Box. A wooden box, containing a convex mirror, a bottom that has been blackened with Indian ink and a star map in the lid. There is also a black stick to put the box half open. The star map differs from box to box. The stick can just as well be a pointing stick and the mirror shows us a curved universe, or when we open the box ourselves.
Wido Blokland’s contribution to the Gallery Box 20/21 comes from his solo exhibition entitled “Terra incognita & The place of man.”
