Making Space Tangible

Making Space Tangible, Albert van Abbehuis, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
7 t/m 19 May 2019
solo exposition

Strijbos & Van Rijswijk: “We believe in the value of art as an open space of individual and collective imagination. Part of our research is how to rearticulate the potential of art as an open space, and the potential of each of us in terms of imaginative space.”

In Albert van Abbehuis Strijbos & Van Rijswijk will present several soundworks, like newcomer Quiver, and Rocking Chairs and Dadoc, as part of an ongoing research on art related to architecture, public space and the public itself. Art, less about objects and more about experience. The transition of object nature to space nature – in which the viewers own experience and reflexivity becomes the subject of the art and that idea of where meaning arises, where value arises – has shifted from thing to event.

The Quiver works are a comment to the environment in which they’re situated. By using the architecture of Albert van Abbehuis as a foil or as a vehicle to compose works visually and acoustically, Strijbos & Van Rijswijk investigates the distinction between imagination and body and architecture. Human perception and human experience are embodied. People begin to experience Quiver, Rocking Chairs and Dadoc only as they interact with them. The significance of these works come from the active participation of a viewer.
