Jennifer Tee at Galerie Fons Welters 2/11/14 Posted 2/11/14

Galerie Fons Welters is proud to announce Jennifer Tee’s solo exhibition ‘Heart Ferment’. Tee’s sculptures and installations hover between their concrete forms and the anticipation of a moment in which these forms could be activated, or animated in some kind of ritual meditation. Her artistic practice foregrounds the need for both opposition and balance, in order to make sense of the material world and the inner soul. Take for example the titles of a series of ceramic urn...

Rob Hornstra at Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie December 14th, 2013 - March 9th
Posted 12/17/13

He uses colour to create an atmosphere that is both intimate and realistic _ with hard to avoid ‘nostalgic’ overtones when it comes to the worn-out interiors and environments of the former Soviet Union. His ‘snapshot’ st... [more]
