Renato Nicolodi´s work has a clear architectonic and monumental character. Using simulated images, life-size sculptures and site-specific installations, the viewer is invited to take part in a visual and physical search within the architectonic forms of his work. The constantly recurring subjective black space, that remains inaccessible for the viewer, coaxes one into reflection.
Sandro Setola (Rotterdam, 1976)
The videos, photos, sculptures and drawings of Sandro Setola are focussed on the subject of architecture, building processes and their underlying ideals. The tension between the ideal or utopian proposal and the actual urban environment in which most of us live, raises questions about the influence of our surroundings on the individual and vice versa. His often humorous and at times cynical interpretations of contemporary architecture are nevertheless always closely linked to nature, expressing personalities rather than evident function.
Renie Spoelstra (Drachten, 1974)
The intention of Renie Spoelstra's recreation area drawings is to let the viewer experience an atmosphere of deliberate apathy; hours and days go by in a split second, every moment frozen in time and every moment equal to the last. Consequently, specific discernable characteristics diminish, making the unique common and indefinite, so that her images come to function as substitutes for similar places.
Renie Spoelstra will be holding a joint exposition with British artist Chris Cornish at our Amsterdam gallery (16th May - 30th June Vernissage 26th May 4-7 pm).
