‘Embodiment’ is a duo exhibition of sculptor Natasja Alers and painter Ronald Zuurmond. In it, the emotive potential of material, colour and movement binds the works in space. The eye follows the curves and dripped colours on the new ceramic sculptures of Natasja Alers. Blobs and humps take almost human shapes. We are invited to touch these sculptures that play on surface and inside.
Ronald Zuurmond leaves remnants pend mid-abstraction, where these traces of his painterly process become flowers, figures or remain abstract. He seems to balance memory and presence both in what is depicted and in aesthetic references.
Opening on May 20th from 6 to 8 pm, ‘Embodiment’ will be introduced with a speech by Prof. Dr. Manfred Sellink, director of the Museum for Fine Arts in Ghent. The evening will be accompanied musically by the High Tree Cats, and catering provided by Van Teylingen Catering and Events. The exhibition runs until July 10th.
We look forward to welcoming you in the gallery!
