After lost space(s) is a project in collage and an installation of painted baseboards and door frames within the three gallery spaces at Kai Matsumiya Gallery. The work takes its inspiration from Guy Mees, Corita Kent, and nineteenth century photographers such as Adolphe Braun, Anna Atkins and William Henry Fox Talbot, and sets the stage where color, activism and the study of botanical specimens meet one another in collage and painting. Constructed on the axis of Guy Mees’s ephemeral works on paper and painting of architectural borders, Verloren ruimte (lost space), the gallery spaces at Kai Matsumiya and their “framing” are activated, along with references to geographical spaces that have disappeared. Typographical fields and images on vellum are united via horizontal and vertical architectural fragments of color, visible from room to room. The highlighting of painted baseboards and door frames functions like a pause, a comma, where the jagged and abrupt changes in the gallery floor plan are pronounced and echoed throughout the content of the collages themselves.
