NICKY ZWAAN: TRYING TO CATCH UP WITH MY MOLECULES
Cityscapes Gallery is proud to present at GM8 two recent installations by artist Nicky Zwaan in which she investigates how we ‘materialize’ the world around us through the perception of light.
‘an object in space is only visible when light bounces off it and enters our eyes as a light wave. The object materializes inside our brain. We think we see it in front off us when in reality it is hiding in our head’.
The way Nicky Zwaan uses mirrors to unravel the beauty of our urban environment reminds off the use off mirrors to discover the ‘picturesque’ beauty of the natural environment in the 18e century. Like her picturesque predescessors Nicky Zwaan sees the world in mirror image. The mirrors changed, so did the world.
