EXHIBITION “Alledaags ineenstorten, over de realiteit van de verbeelding” 17-5-2009

“Alledaags ineenstorten, over de realiteit van de verbeelding” toont poëtische observaties en interventies op alledaagse banaliteiten. De combinatie van een poëtische taal en de realiteit als een persoonlijk operatiekader manifesteert zich in zowel ruimtelijk werk en schilderijen als in video’s en foto’s.

Ineenstorten verwijst behalve naar processen waarmee de objecten van fysieke vorm veranderen ook naar de verandering van een vast beeld over de realiteit om ons heen. De kunstenaars creëren en volgen deze veranderingen, stellen vragen over de grenzen tussen object en omgeving en over de vloeibare relatie tussen realiteit en verbeelding

VERNISAGE: zo 17 mei: 16.00 u.
FINISSAGE: zo 14 juni: 16.00 u.

Adres:
Genootschap Kunstliefde
