The paintings of Mark van Overeem (1970) too look like abstract, even geometric abstract, works. But a closer look reveals mind-boggling spatial illusions of object-like shapes, in which the boundaries between image and object, between the 2nd and the 3rd dimension, and between painting and wall are erased. In addition to these paintings, Van Overeem shows an installation with light projection, and a series of photo collages, that elaborate on the images invoked by his paintings.
The installations of Heidi Linck (1978) are interventions in space. From a wide range of materials (or shadows and light) she creates new, imaginable and often mobile spaces. Her drawings, invariably in black ink, remind one of a room in which the light has just been turned off: over time spatial details slowly dawn on the viewer. They derive from observed or imagined spaces which she mixes and merges into new spatial configurations. Her latest series of drawings (Rich people having fun) refer to existing public spaces that have been deserted as a result of the financial crisis. For the occasion she prepared a film of another empty space: the hall and stands of Art Amsterdam 2010, bare, without art and without visitors
