During South Explorer, artist Lorena van Bunningen will present the work Attempts to sculpt a movement II (2017 - present). The work examines how a temporary, brief movement can be frozen. It is a form study in which the market tent is examined, not for its functionality, but for its ever-changing form and spatiality. She is fascinated by the movement that is frozen in the material and looks for ways in which she can preserve those forms that can exist only for a short period of time.Runs from 14 April - 1 July 2018Gemaal op Zuid, Pretorialaan 141, Rotterdam
Ella Elisabeth explores with her works the borders of photography. Ella separates facets in order to create serenity. A serenity that offers interaction between the spectator and the work. She recently explored photographic applications by means of clothing as a series for Damage Playground playing with the body as sculpture, intertwinement, paper matter, and garment pieces by Hellen van Rees. These works which for now mostly exists in the tangible world might never see the digital light.
