Curved side down
Marleen Sleeuwits en Femke Dekkers
Curator: Radek Vana
14 Sep till 9 Oct 2016
Opening: Wednesday 14 Sep 2016 — 18:00 till 21:00 hrs

A unique collaboration project of two established young artists working with photography. Both Marleen Sleeuwits and Femke Dekkers transform interior spaces in order to lift these out of the everyday grayness and functionality. Curved side down will be opened during West Wednesdays.

The work of Sleeuwits and Dekkers creates on the one hand a confusing shift of perspective from space to photography and from photography to painting (Dekkers) and on the other hand a dazzling flattened experience in which a three dimensional space almost disappears (Sleeuwits).

For puntWG Sleeuwits and Dekkers have developed an installation using the architecture of the exhibition space as a starting point. This elaborate construction initially filled the space completely, only to be dismantled after having been photographed. However, an almost life size print of the temporary construction is presented in this very space.

A strange Droste-effect, a ghost space in which the boundaries between architecture and photography, colour and colourless, real and fictitious, below and above and between Dekkers and Sleeuwits seem to have been abandoned.

There will be an artist talk on the 24th of September at 17.00 o'clock with Marleen Sleeuwits en Femke Dekkers.

The exhibition has been partly funded by Gallery Bart, AFK and Stroom Den Haag.

Marleen Sleeuwits en Femke Dekkers have also answered Een vraag / A question  ....
