Gladys Zeevaarders & Sophie Johns
In the installations of Gladys Zeevaarders appear new shapes that have a strong connection to landscape-like surroundings. These unexpected forms make us presume that they have grown beyond human control. The viewer stumbles upon fictional ruins that instantaneously leave them in confusion and disorientation. Starting from zero in an intuitively driven process, Zeevaarders generates a situation in which nature, construction and deconstruction meet one another. Along the way, these different processes explore each other and change the perspective of the viewer. By the act of walking, searching and exploring Zeevaarders’ works, the viewer can unravel unseen narratives and give meaning to things. For her graduationwork, she worked together with Sophie Johns. You can find this project here.
