'Easy to love, but...' | Karin van Pinxteren | 2012 | photo by Sandra Eijkman

In the depot of an artist-run centre I discovered an ellipse that I had left there in 2000. It was the residue of an object I had manufactured for a performance (a large photo frame that functioned as a booth). At the time I thought my life as an artist would become easier with the years, clearer, but instead it only became more complicated. This ellipse, a simple familiar shape, has become charged with various meanings over time. It has become an important figure, we share a commitment.

I try to love this entity, caressing it, holding it in my arms, but it is not easy. Two heartbeats can be heard and a waltz with its three-four time, a dance for two persons. Different moments of the day follow one another. I try to hand over the ellipse to the audience but I can’t let go of it.
