Gradient / Rogier van der Zwaag
11.05.22 — 11.06.22
The exhibition will open during Amsterdam Art Week to the public on 'Gallery Night' Thursday, May 12th (17:00-21:00), this will be followed by the ‘Artist Talk & Drinks’ which takes place on Saturday, May 14th (16:00-19:00).
With Gradient, Van der Zwaag reflects on how subtle changes in natural and digital space can be shaped and manipulated into works of art. He approaches images and objects as flexible and dynamic, transforming them by hand into multi-textual and layered art forms. His videos and photographic work appear simple at first glance, but are part of a complex construction process that is often sculptural in nature and can be both interactive and static. The work on display is full of images that are familiar to the viewer, but at the same time take on new meaning as they are placed in a new context by means of electronic moving images. The exhibition has a visually poetic character and makes form and matter dance with each other in time and space.
