AboutCHRISTIAN FERREIRA is delighted to present a solo exhibition of Heringa/Van Kalsbeek's sculptural work. Titled Drie, the exhibition features three of the Dutch duo, Liet Heringa and Marteen Van Kalsbeek's abstracted sculptures housed in the industrial surrounds of the Accumulator Tower of The Wapping Project.
Chaotic in their appearance the works are reminiscent of bestial wildlife photography caught in motion. Created from steel, resin and polyurethane mixed with found objects such as feathers, cloth and coral the work has a rich assemblage like quality. As multilayered as the material creation of the works are so too are the readings that can be taken from the work. Reluctant to clarify any meaning, the artist seem to follow the Death of the Author" school of thought and allows the viewer to formulate the meaning of these colourful and collision-like pieces themselves.
