‘How to do things with sculpture’ & ‘the myth of absence’

‘How to do things with sculpture’ is a group exhibition of contemporary sculpture. The works selected show the various positions of young artists who, each in their unique way, use everyday objects and materials.

For instance, materials and constructions exploring the boundaries between form and the body are being interfered with or there are spatial compositions using a story to create a space and character of their own. The result is spatial work balancing between recognition and alienation, between the thing and the story. It asks or perhaps even shows how to do things with sculpture.

‘the myth of absence’

Roderick Laperdrix

Roderick Laperdrix was artist in residence specifically for drawing in Werkplaats Diepenheim from 13 May until 13 July 2015 with a grand from the Mondriaan Fund for studios inside The Netherlands. In his work he often uses the recluse as a caricature to portray the complex relationship between man and nature. ‘The fact that this longing for isolation cannot always be fulfilled by the presence of others subsequently leads to absurdist scenes.’ His drawings, often on a large format, are delicate and narrative.

The exhibitons are on view from 12 December 2014 until 28 February 2015.
