Gold leaf on wood
208 x 204 cm

The gold-plated traces of worms (called Typographers) turn into the stigmata of an wooden frames, enclosing the beauty of mortality and eternity at the same time. The worms’ peculiar traces are reminiscent of a kind of alphabet. This leads towards the realisation of the fact that neither literalness nor distinctness can provide answers, and that any representation of the absolute is impossible.
