Caro Rambonnet, Space Debris; Pulchri Studio, The Hague

It is not very likely that robots will take over in future, but they are perfect creatures for fairy tales.

Caro Rambonnet’s paintings in her present show at Pulchri Studio look like pictures from a science fiction fairy tale or from a comic story.

There is even an almost real robot, disguised as a chair. Rambonnet’s world of science fiction doesn’t seem to be one with dangers and pitfalls, but neither is it one big pink happy world.

There are almost no human beings in her paintings (except in this show for a merry astronaut) but there are enough things made by human beings, including her own works.

There are, as usual in Rambonnet’s work, some abstract paintings as well, which seem to fit in perfectly in the abstract mind of a robot or in a futurist world.

I have a weak spot for Rambonnet’s work, which seems to be an almost constant flow of translations from the real into an alternative world.
