In the endless flow of our lives, people come and go. And while the presence of some can be so subtle that we hardly notice when it begins or when it ends, with others, it is much clearer: they enter or exit with a crash.

In Borders of Nothingness, Dutch photographer Margaret Lansink (born in 1961) explores the transitional ambiguity of her adult daughter's decision to cut off all contact with her, by photographing landscapes and naked women whose fleeting presence questions the same torments : is this the time when you left?

Over time, Lansink and his daughter reconnected to try to reweave their relationship. Lansink then revisited and reinterpreted Borders of Nothingness to materially reflect their emotional healing efforts.

Inspired by the Japanese method of repairing broken ceramics with golden leaves, she collects her images, tears them up and then re-glues them with golden leafs to give hope to the possibility of recreating a link between them - much stronger and more beautiful as it had once been as broken.
