这一些列作品会在Ron Mandos 画廊展出到6月25日。

艺术家分别用三万块木块,木球,木条做了三个装置,每一个的大小为4米x2.5米x2.5米。画廊还展出相关视频和照片。灵感来自艺术家童年卧室,艺术家在那里度过了8岁—14岁的儿时童年。

每个房间里面的从地板到墙壁,到天花板,到家具,以及人,都用的是相同的材料,木块,或木球,或木条。这些作品以非常个人的方式展示延续艺术家的自我。重复性的结构仿佛表达了一种恐惧以及作者本身执着于通过通过环境来控制生活。昏暗的光线,黯淡的颜色带有黑暗幽闭的气质,散发出一种孤独感。工艺和材料都相当细致和考究,是一间美丽的作品。

21 May – 25 June Solo exhibition at Ron Mandos gallery
Opening 21 May 17:00 – 19:00

Levi van Veluw (Hoevelaken NL, 1985) will showcase new work from a series of new installations, photographs and videos in which he draws from his own childhood memories to thematically and narratively develop his own brand of self-portraiture.

The artist will create 3 new ‘sets’ covered with more then 30.000 wooden blocks, balls and slats. Each ‘set’ is executed as a life-size installation (4m x 2.5m x 2.5m) and will be presented at the gallery together with a panoramic photograph, and a video. These installations are inspired by different aspects of his boyhood bedroom, where he spent many solitary hours between the ages of 8 and 14, the Origin of the Beginning.

Portrayed in one piece is a desk, a table lamp, a bookcase. The edge of the table is burned by Levi van Veluw as he had an obsession for fire. All of these objects including every inch of the floor, walls and ceiling is covered in the same material: 14.000 4 x 4cm dark brown wooden blocks. The blocks are made by the artist and glued on the wall one by one. The works suggest a narrative world behind the abstract portraits.

On the one hand these works present themselves as a continuation of van Veluw’s formal approach to self-portraiture, with their preoccupation for materiality, pattern and texture. Yet they are simultaneously very personal pieces. The repetitive structures seemingly express a ‘horror vacui’ and recall van Veluw the youth and his obsessive attempts to gain control on his life by gaining control of his surroundings. Dimly light and dark in colour the overriding tone of these pieces are claustrophobic and sombre, exuding a sense of loneliness. The meticulous craftsmanship and high quality material with which every last knock and cranny is covered, result in a series of works that are also highly aesthetic.
