« Wandering through an installation by Wela one imagines oneself in a Gogol novel, as the unreal becomes real! It is not some kind of technique made to fool us, but an ingenious artistic device. »

   Ileana Cornea, Critic of art, Paris, september 2001


“My approach is born of a reflection on the visual and psychological impact of the artwork, given the subjectivity of the viewer.  I invite the viewer to play with his own perception, to discover the interaction of multiple components, to discover, through metaphors, the multi-meaning of the work.”                                                                             Wela, Paris, 2001

“Suspended Passage ” continues Wela’s research on the “Unreal realities” The artist aim is to co-create with the spectator the totality of the virtual reality of drawing, time and space.
The work consist of an open space formed by two cylindrical forex walls, six metres high and four metres in diameter, inside which the artist has drawn in pencil. In the centre of the cylinder there is a rerolling column in highly polished stainless steel which reflects both the artist drawing and the external environment destabilised by the presence of the spectator.
