In the back space of Galerie Maurits van de Laar one can get caught in a two and three dimensional situation of wonder and discovery. The space is filled with objects by Karin van Dam (1959) and drawings by Robbie Cornelissen (1954) .
As a visitor you have to move with some care. This may invite you to look with care as well. Van Dam’s objects are lying on the ground and hanging from the ceiling, while on the walls are two gigantic works by Cornelissen.
One of these two works has a strong sense of perspective, while the other, a composite work, gives an idea of space where perspective plays no role anymore.
Van Dam’s objects look like a reconstitution of the things that surround us in an imaginative amalgamation of nature and culture.
The middle space shows a lively dialogue with smaller works by both artists.
The front space shows two monumental works: an installation by Van Dam and a composite drawing by Cornelissen.
Combined they may give you the idea of more dimensions than you might usually experience.
