Starting from research and intense conceptualizing Rikke Darling seeks for the unknown mysteries in life, considering all life forms as basically the same, coming from the same ground material. Looking for the principle of balance in nature, or life generally, she explores the light and the dark sides of this organic process by acknowledging dangers, risks and abysses. She invites the viewer for a journey through inner and outer spaces. There is a demanding appeal in this: to observe the inner and outer worlds more diligently and to bring them into balance again. The macrocosm is reflected by the microcosm, structures outside relate to structures inside. Life forms consist of structures, that life itself is structuring. Life is a process, so is art. As she says: “It’s all about life.”
