Ilumina 2 – Art & Design exhibition
December 16 @ 18:00 - 21:00 UTC+2
The second installment of Ilumina will combine works of art and design to shine a light during the winter months.
Albert Geertjes, Rui Weerkamp, Bass&Bop, Fijo Art, Roel Stels and Alex Anvil are the artists that will bring us a combination of techniques, media, shape and form that use light as their source, inspiration or as the final outcome.
Opening reception: Sunday 16th of December, 18:00 – 21:30 with live body painting by Alex Anvil
Exhibition will run from the 16th December until the 10th of February
Albert Geertjes work is a fusion of function, form, and meaning. His pieces tell a story… He is a sort of poet of things bringing out the soul of objects.
“Albert Geertjes, visual artist and furniture maker, looks and thinks like a poet. He assigns things a character, a story, a soul. His work arises from the conversation with his material: the rough glass, the smooth copper, the cold steel, the old trunk, the stone that asks for reunification with its counter mold. Geertjes works from a connection with things and makes visible what was already there: the hidden possibilities.” (Janet Meester).
Rui Weerkamp combines different media with light, creating perception altering pieces that play with our senses.
Bass&Bop create defiant devices and normally work on stage decoration. Get ready to be hooked on their contagious creations.
Fijo Art a Dutch designer duo that brings old vintage objects to ‘light’! Removing objects from their original context and giving them a new purpose brings out a certain sense of nostalgia in us while keeping the contemporary feel very much alive.
Roel Stels combines different styles with whatever objects he picks up and finds. Inspired by fantasy and his fascination for beauty, Nature, life and death – the result is beautiful, wild, serious and everything else at the same time.
Alex Anvil will show us what else he can do besides his tattooing. He paints on canvas and also on bodies… UV light will bring his paintings out of the canvas adding a third dimension to his work.
