with extra -outdoor- presentation by Lambert Kamps
VIVID in Rotterdam Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eijk present new work.
For this exhibition Van Bleiswijk worked only with thick steel plates
and a blowtorch to create the 'no screw no glue rough' edition. He made
sculptures that could be art pieces, you could use them as tables or cupboards...
Van Eijk made the autonomous objects 'Floating Frames' out of brass wire,
adding ceramic parts. In this work the construction looks like little
ink drawings. This limited editions express her freedom of sketching in
objects. They look like real life 3d sketches, in which you can clearly
see the function: a clock, a candle holder, lamps.
works of Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eik in this exhibition reinforce
each other in a positive way. The tough strength of Joost, his heavy steel
plates against the fragility of Kiki's airy and less systematic structures,
give an additional tension to both artifacts.....
