In Perspectives on Space, LaKaserna presents three artists each focusing in their own way on space, perspective and site-specific pieces: Henriëtte van ’t Hoog, Michael Wright and María José Ramírez Ramírez.
geometrical objects of Henriëtte van ’t Hoog (Amsterdam, 1943), although made of zinc and firmly attached to the walls, seem to float, to emit light, and to interact with the wall and the surrounding space.
María José Ramírez Ramírez (Bilbao, 1957) manifests herself in this exhibition both as its curator and as one of the participating artists. Her paintings and photographs have been produced specifically for the LaKaserna exhibition site and create an installation that reflects the title of the show.
The video Zip
Wright & Van ’t Hoog, stills from the video Zip, 2017
is the newest creation sprung from the ten-year collaboration, under the name Wright & Van ’t Hoog,
between Henriëtte van ’t Hoog and the British photographer and video-artist Michael Wright (Hertfordshire, 1955), who focuses in his work on the physical and psychological experience of space.
Also on view is the video-installation Dazzle by Wright & Van ’t Hoog, in which the image is projected from three different angles. The music composed for this installation by Philip Mead adds to a fascinating juxtaposition of light, colour, rhythm and space.
