Solaris at Saatchi Gallery

I was very proud to present my latest work Solaris at the Saatchi Gallery in London this last October. It was shown as part of a triptych, together with the work of Matthijs Munnik and Geert Mul and presented by curator Piet de Jonge with the subject matter of DEFYING THE NOTION OF ART AS COMMODITY

Piet de Jonge: “My choice is a critical note to the concept of an art fair where artworks are being traded. This selection of works is about the necessity of taking your time to actually experience the impact of an artwork. All three artists work with the notion of time and visual impact. They are presenting works that defy the notion of the artwork as a commodity.”

It was shown in a renewed version with a new mechanical system, software and recipe, to obtain longer lasting soap films, this resulted in fractal like patterns in the soap films.                                        (click on image for larger photo)

 

Solace at Almost Cinema, Ghent

I was very happy to present Solace at Almost Cinema 2012. It was presented under the best conditions, especially temperature wise. The soap films lasted very long and new patterns started to appear in the film. Thanks to HC Gilje for the image.
