CITYSCAPES at RAW ART FAIR
RAW ART FAIR
06 to 10 February 2013 Cityscapes Gallery presents at the Raw Art Fair Rotterdam exiting new work by three guest artists, who use destruction and distortion to construct new spatial realities: Marjan Teeuwen, Alexa Meyerman and Jeroen Molenaar.
Modern Dutch architecture is characterized by a dialectic proces of destruction and reconstruction. ‘YOU DESTRUCT WHAT WE BUILD UP’ said Berlage to Gerrit Rietveld. Rietveld on his turn blamed Aldo van Eyck to do the contrary: ‘YOU BUILD UP WHAT WE DESTRUCTED’ Building and destruction are also the common themes behind the installations and objects that Cityscapes Gallery shows at this years Raw Art Fair.
Cityscapes Gallery is proud to collaborate on Raw Art Fair 2013 project based with special guest artist Marjan Teeuwen. Cityscapes offers at RAW Marjan Teeuwens monumental photo series VERWOEST HUIS BLOEMHOF. The Bloemhof series is based on the installation that Marjan Teeuwen realized in a demolition house in Rotterdam Zuid. During RAW it is possible to visit the installation Verwoest Huis Bloemhof. A shuttle bus drives regularly from Raw Art Fair to the nearby location of the installation at Putse Bocht 58/60.
At RAW Cityscapes Gallery shows three recent photo objects by Alexa Meyerman. Her fragile, transparent photo sculptures are dreamlike depictions of existing buildings. The buildings are reconstructed in a surreal way. Some details have been emphasized; others are dissolving or dissolved, like in memories or dreams.
Jeroen Molenaar is a young Dutch artist who investigates architectonic themes in his sculptures, paintings and photo’s. Cityscapes shows at RAW Molenaars wall sculpture DISTORTED LANDSCAPE and some recent paintings. Both paintings and sculptures show deconstructions and distortions of architectonic environments.
