'Heimlich' by Maurice van Tellingen

& 5X RIJKSAKADEMIE ALUMNI: Hans Op de Beeck, Inti Hernandez, Arthur Kleinjan, Jacco Olivier & Christiaan Zwanikken
Galerie Ron Mandos Amsterdam
29.11.2013 - 04.01.2014

This winter Galerie Ron Mandos Amsterdam shows a double exhibition of new sculptural work by Maurice van Tellingen. In addition, the exhibition also features new work by 5 Rijksakademie Alumni.

Maurice van Tellingen constructs images that resemble reality just like reality resembles itself. This is why the objects by Van Tellingen lose their practical value and become signs. And subsequently, these signs easily attract new meaning. The psychology of perception composes a narrative from something that is obviously a mirror image. And this fiction can easily be accepted as a reality. Associations and suspense assemble these images to create a new world. A world we can relate in the same way as to any other world. These machinations could be seen as an exercise in detachment. The work qualifies the conventions we use to keep the world in check. And the brain becomes conscious of the correlation between reality and the way we experience it. As if it has separated perception and experience. As a result everyday objects and rooms are revived and become fantastic again. And the world emerges as a poetical space.
