A building book
This project is built upon an investigation around concrete and
questions of (re)construction, inspired by the idea of Bauhaus
architecture and particularly its ample use of concrete.
Photographs of concrete architecture and self-made sculptures are
removed from their original context and become part of a new
inventory that suggests multiple possible combinations.
Responding to the words of artist and Bauhaus teacher Paul Klee that “a painting is built up piece by piece, no different from a house”, photography is here approached in the same way: the image can be constructed, assembled bit by bit from different parts.
By reshuffling the existing world into one that supports new links between elements, the idea of the project goes along with the multidisciplinary and interconnected spirit of Bauhaus and integrates thoughts we are facing today: How to relate to all the existing materials and ideas, how to reuse and reconnect them in new ways?
Exhibited during 'Rethinking Bauhaus' at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in 2019, in celebration if the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus.
Common Concrete (2019), 21,7 x 29 cm.
