As part of Roeland Tweelinckx’s solo show “Things you can rearrange“, Irène Laub Gallery is glad to welcome you to a talk between the artist and Belgian curator Els Wuyts.
RDV at the gallery on Sunday June 9th, at 2pm.
Roeland Tweelinckx is well-known for his three dimensional creations, in which he uses materials from our daily lives to create a dialogue with the artwork’s environment and to manipulate our spatial perception. His prodution is characterized by a mix of objects and in situ works called «interventions», placed in public settings or exhibition spaces.
Roeland Tweelinckx often duplicates reality, creating subtle changes in form or material : a nail taped to a sheet of paper looks real but is actually a reproduction; a creased paper reveals itself to be a print; interlocked cardboard boxes is a trompe-l’oeil actually made from wood… The artist also plays with expectations, subverting the laws of physics : a metal beam is miraculously balanced on a chair, reversing the standard relationship between an architectural structure and an object created to support the human body. His work makes you doubt your own eyes and take a second glance. Roeland Tweelinckx subverts the ordinary, using discreet but precise visual and conceptual twists, and those small alterations have the power to change the way we look at our surroundings, at everyday objects that were always taken for granted.
