Indian ink on paper, 22 x 30 cm
Several animations created for the exhibition Seek Merry Hell at MU artspace

'In Rop van Mierlo’s view, fire and water are the elements that belong to the catastrophe that lies in store for us at the end of 2012. He makes use of Indian ink, a material that literally consists of fire (soot/carbon) and water. Using this ink and a pile of paper, Van Mierlo has created a series of animations in which he attempts to bring the world back to life after the catastrophe.'
