‘Interspace’ is probably the term that best summarises Ivan Liovik Ebel’s work. For him, the confrontation with the relativity of perception, forms of non-distinguishability and the relationship between time and space stand behind this term. It is always about the attempt to stage a condition beyond strict opposites such as the visible and the non-visible, the past and the future, to abolish or capture transitions between them.
‘Individual works and series based on repeated gestures and regulating principles question the idea of the original and the copy, temporality, change, chronology and the relationship between time and space in the process of creating an image’, states Ivan Liovik Ebel on the Loop series.
