Solo Exhibition “The Collapse of Cohesion”
7 Sept - 5 Oct 2013 at Galerie Ron Mandos
Prinsengracht 282 Amsterdam, the Netherlands
This series of 7 large and 12 small drawings as well as 2 installations includes various elements from Van Veluw’s boyhood bedroom. Whereas the previous series incorporated themes of control, order and structure, in these works we witness the disintegration of these elements. Order turns into chaos. Visions of collapsing desks, falling cupboards and exploding cabinets mark the moment of disruption. Human structures are affected by forces of nature such as gravity, water and wind and in this way realigned into a new, natural order of things.
