Adriaan Verwee

by Xavier Speeleveld

 

Text only in Flemish 

Adriaan Verwée (°1975) leeft en werkt in Gent. Hij nam deel aan diverse groeps-en solotentoonstellingen in binnen- en buitenland. Zijn werk maakt deel uit van de Belfius collectie en diverse particuliere collecties in Noorwegen, Duitsland, Peru en België. Verwée werkt met ruimtelijk composities die zich bevinden tussen de grenzen van sculptuur, schilderkunsten en tekenkunst. Realiteitsfragmenten worden tot abstract formeel ogende kunst bewerkt zonder in conceptloos formalisme verzeild te geraken. Typerend voor zijn oeuvre is een doorgedreven vereenvoudiging en een nuchtere uitvoering met een poëtische ondertoon.

METACHAOS is a multidisciplinary audio-visual project, articulated in a short film, a set of photography and mix-technique paintings. The purpose of the project is to represent the most tragic aspects of the human nature and of its motion, such as war, madness, social change and hate. Metachaos, from Greek Meta (beyond) and Chaos (the abyss where the eternally-formless state of the universe hides), indicates a primordial shape of ameba, which lacks in precise morphology, and it is characterized by mutation and mitosis.

Matthew Craven

by Xavier Speeleveld

We envy the gallery that features the works of New York artist Matthew Craven, who painstakingly inks and collages geometric black and white images onto aged paper. His source imagery reads vaguely familiar, perhaps reminiscent of old Roman or Greek ruins paired alongside patterns from the Peruvian Andes or West African baskets? It’s anyone’s guess after Craven’s done synthesizing together historical and cultural elements from across the globe to create his own minimalistic mythologies

Big Air Package
Gasometer oberhausen, Germany
To be visited untill 30 december 2013

In his first major public work since the death of his partner jeanne-claude in2009, christo's 'big air package' is already reported to be both the largest ever inflated frameless envelope and the most expansive indoor sculpture ever created. while the artist typically works at the monumental scale of the city or building, the 90 meter high inflatable boasts a volume of 177,000 cubic meters and uses 20,350 square meters of semitransparent polyester fabric as well as 4,500 meters of rope. despite lacking a skeleton, the 5 ton form fills the interior of a former gas tank, amplifying the ethereal quality of the space with diffused light. christo describes the experience as 'virtually swimming in light' as a result of the vast expanses of fabric.

It is incredible what artists can do with technology. “splash” is video created by paulo wang while he was trying to learn the basics of fluid simulations with reaflow captured at 32 frames per second. the Austria-based artist has a particular passion for after effects and cinema 4D and has created a number of experimental short clips over the past months while working with various imaging software.

Katrien Vermeire

by Xavier Speeleveld

 

“Using photography's fundamental ingredients of light and time, Katrien Vermeire allows the medium to make visible what would otherwise be invisible and catches the beauty of a special natural phenomenon. Bright yellow stripes represent the paths taken by fireflies during extended exposure.

The artist is fascinated with the idea that humans are always waiting for something meaningless which never arrives'
One great example is our daily life. we start the day with a certain expectation of the day to come in mind, and we end the day with a repeated routine - we lie in bed, close our eyes and think about what will come tomorrow before drifting off to sleep…. we are in a constant state of waiting and expectation, it’s a part of being human. and I think this continuous process of expectation allows us the space to generate and develop new ideas, beliefs and hypotheses.

Marie Verdurmen

by Xavier Speeleveld

Marie Verdurmen uses her art to reveal hidden contradictions and to create new imbalances of her own making. She paints answers to questions posed by both pop culture and politics. She addresses riddles such as gender and humanity. Her constant inspiration is the materiality of the bodies to which we are all shackled. Marie Verdurmen's paintings are questions: rhetorical invitations to join her on a trip through an ever shifting reality. A look behind the coat of paint that covers society. Her questions are not academic nor cerebral, but concrete and visceral. Her paintings testify to a tension. A tension between what is and what could be. Between what is mandatory and what is possible. Her portraits are not static, not regal: she puts her subject in the twilight between action and anxiety, in the limbo between want and accomplishment. The only certainty to be found in these paintings is the never relenting doubt of one's own identity."

cais das artes, sao paolo

by Xavier Speeleveld

The 'cais das artes', or 'pier of the arts', is an appropriately-named museum and theater complex located in vitoria, just north of rio de janeiro along sua bay's built coast. the site is a recently created concrete plane along the dock in an area benefiting from lovely views of the native landscape and the city backdrop, amongst new constructions and historical treasures. the primary strategy was to command this important space to convert it into the cultural center of the metropolis while preserving the character of place -- not an easy task considering the very large masses that would need to be built to accommodate a three-level museum and 1,300-seat theater.

Architect paulo mendes da rocha sums up the crux of the project:

'this is an urban-oriented architectural action, in the sense of adjusting history and geography to a desired view of the present, indicating at the same
time a museological conception, an effort to combine art and science, under an integrated perspective.'

Elias Heuninck

by Xavier Speeleveld

Phantom Ride senses the boundaries of the landscape-image. With a simple rearranging algorithm, the image production-chain (camera-computer-screen) stops with representing and starts presenting a new reality. By applying a perspective change not with the camera but in the data-file itself a new sensibility to the awareness of space, shape and motion in the landscape-image develops itself. A still image becomes animated (picture, slide show, motion picture) and starts a game with the recognizable and the absolutely alien.

The work is presented upon a screen of 2 meters high and 6 meters wide which leans against the wall. Because of this, the image not only gets a monumental nature but it can also relate itself with the space it's presented in. The screen gives weight to the image. Because the frame, just as the onlooker is standing on the floor, the two can come closer together and so this alien world becomes accessible.
