Sensory Spaces 6 - Sara VanDerBeek

Sensory Spaces is a series of commissioned solo projects presented in the Willem van der Vorm Gallery, located in the freely accessible exhibition space in the museum’s entrance hall. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the space, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise.

For the sixth edition of the series Sensory Spaces Sara VanDerBeek (Baltimore 1976) walked around Rotterdam for several days; she photographed what she saw and built an archive of images. From this experience, she created a modular installation especially for the Willem van der Vorm Gallery, in which three-dimensional objects, images and materials enter into relationships with one another as natural elements do. 

On the floor lies an expanse of reflective plates, a distilled interpretation of the sea. Two large photographs printed on fabric were captured during her time in Rotterdam. With a limited palette, and various materials she has created a compelling installation in which forms convey time, in its most fleeting and it most concrete qualities, resting somewhere between its passage and itscontinuity. 

On the online video channel ARTtube you can find a video about the artist. In this video she tells about her work of art and the work process.
