Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK007965).
The work Eilanden (Islands) consists of ten elegantly shaped organic surfaces in the ten colours characteristic of Van Snick's oeuvre (primary and secondary colours, the achromatic colours of white and black along with the gold and silver metallics), supplemented by three daytime and night islands in blue and black. The work symbolises a densely populated archipelago of clearly distinct geographical entities. The installation is displayed across the floor, but puzzlingly gives the impression of swallowing the room whole.
