On the Soft Edge of Space

Marleen Sleeuwits


Exhibition at Onomatopee photography by Marleen Sleeuwits

Solo exhibition by Marleen Sleeuwits at the Onomatopee project-space.

Exhibition runs untill October 30th.

Is it possible for our direct sensual experience of a space to derive understanding from a different representation of space?

The solo exhibition On the Soft Edge of Space of Marleen Sleeuwits derives its title from her artists’ book, recently published by Onomatopee. Like the book, the exhibition is a stage on which space is placed at the centre by exploring it in a particular visual manner.

By means of architectural, site-specific interventions, Marleen Sleeuwits manipulates space’s artificial nature to put our sensual experience of space to the test. Although the site-specific works in the Onomatopee show merge into the space’s architecture, they remain individual, unrelated sculptural objects, as slight deformations of reality. This renders space itself contradictory – that is, like a tangible fata morgana. Her work tries to find a new horizon in these poetics.

’Dictionary Dressings’, a research project by Femke de Vries explores how clothing can be alternativeley assembled and how functions can be re-imagined.
’Standards’ by Thomas Raat, considers typologies and archetypes within chairs, as a formal and painterly representation of the social dimension in design. 
The mindblowing yet minimalist project ’The Power of Imagination’, by Freek Lomme and Pinar & Viola, fosters the imagination by supplying a 5-minute workshop (soon available on vinyl).

A project by Femke de Vries

Official Opening October 22, 4 PM
Continuing until December 20, open Thursdays to Sundays

EVENT!
Official book launch and talk with Joke Robaard
Friday October 28th, 7PM

 

To decode clothes and explore an alternative fashion vocabulary Femke de Vries’ research project Dictionary Dressings takes the dictionary definition as a “zero condition” of a piece of clothing. These definitions, entirely delineated in physical terms, lead to alternative assemblies and re-imagined functions.

A solo by Thomas Raat

October 8th - October 30th
official opening October 22nd, 4 PM

 

Thomas Raat’s work found form as remodeled mass-produced “vintage” chairs. These mass-produced chairs, not seldom spin-offs from iconic designs, were purchased at flea markets and thrift stores or found in the street. During the selection of the chairs, Raat established a specific spectrum of forms and materials. This spectrum brings the outlines in focus of an archetype or stereotype that constitutes a basic motif in the series.

 

By the artistic re-appropriation of these ready-made objects of 20th-century modernism, painter and sculptor Thomas Raat calls for a renewed effort to vertically elevate the masses by questioning the formal properties of modernism and to horizontally explore the arts and crafts within our very day-to-day cultural existence.
