Veerle Thoben questions the duration and location of a moment.

In photography and video she captures invading daylight which she then projects back into the room or public space. There, the projection mixes with the light that is present and comes to a self-contained image.

This way Thoben's work occupies a spatial position that is situated in several places at the same time: between temporary and permanent, between illusion and reality.

An actual image is formed of what has already been and, at the same time, never took place.
