20 april – 6 juli Moved lines
Ina Fekken (installations) and Mathilde van Wijnen (wall sculptures)

Ina en Mathilde paperwork

Those two artists from Groningen (the North of the netherlands), has each her own background. Ina made, especially for this occasion, the installation “BARST” in the big windows of the gallery.The work is based on the problems of the gas extraction in her region. Also shown are “Bijou’s”, lasercut wall objects.

Mathilde’s work looks more introvert but it isn’t, because of the size of the works. Ze has a double life, as an artist and as musician. Her work is inspired by minimal music. You can see it’s rhythem by the colour and waves of the cut-out lines. Come and see by yourself her poetic works.

Studio

Loes Schepens’s studio is situated behind the gallery. Loes works with paper and graphic art. You can find her work in the gallery and on her website www.loesschepens.nl.

The age-old craft of manufacturing paper, with its large diversity of raw materials and techniques, is experiencing a revival. Workshops on how to make paper with vegetable fibres or according to eastern techniques are given on a irregular basis. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive more information.
