Far Away (Su)
Installation (2008)
Glass, red neon gas, Perspex, iron
25 x 30 x 11 cm

In my best Chinese, hands and feet I ordered a neon with my name 'Su' in Beijing in 2008. Back in the Netherlands a native speaker, who also works as a translator, tells me the Chinese character doesn't say 'su' but 'yuan', which means 'far away'.

'Far Away (Su)' was exhibited at the Salon 2015 at Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam. May 8 until May 31.
It was also part of the installation Beijing-Beetsterzwaag in Kunsthuis Syb in 2008.
