In collaboration with artist Karel De Mulder, Empty Chair is a work that deals with the subject of absence. Looking at an Empty Chair makes us wonder who could sit on it or who might be sitting there. Not knowing or seeing this makes us more curious and a photograph more exciting. Will the empty chair be able to carry the weight and who will be its new companion? Will we ever know?
