Although the title of this work is Distance, the far away scene isn’t visible. A character in unproportional dimensions stands on a seemingly mountainous ground. Cylinders, which are often used by the artist, constitute here huge barriers spanning across the space. Rather than defining a physical distance, the title here refers to a form of awareness.
