All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream. (Edgar Alan Poe).
The exposition ‘Larger Perspective’ presents work of two artists who, with ‘cityscapes’ as a recurrent topic, structurally, sometimes almost literally, aim to widen our perception of reality. From both artist we present a combination of recent and earlier work.
Photographer Lard Buurman (1969) depicts what one might call 'human cityscapes'; images of the city with explicit attention for their human dynamics. He does so by using a highly personal technique, to allow for fusing many time samples and creating a remarkable broad view of the global urban environment.
Nicky Zwaan (1971) conceptualizes artworks with whatever technique and material best represents the wonder she aims to instill about the workings of the universe on our daily life. With instrallatons and photo’s she investigates how we ‘materialize’ the world around us through the working of light.
