3D Virtual Gallery Tour: MATERIA
MATERIA is about artists sharing the same formal artistic language of abstraction. However, their research, approach, methods of production and use of material to depict abstraction are diverse and unique.
Let us present you selected artworks!
Thomas Canto's works, even his installations, are often geometric environments expanding in space like abstract volumetric drawings, in a continuation of the works of Jesús Rafael Soto, Carlos Cruz-Diez or, more recently, in the line of the Iranian artist Timo Nasseri’s line-based sculptures. Canto’s pieces, while having an unexpected simplicity of means, are visually sophisticated networks that play with the perspective viewpoint and the materialization of the gaze. When we see images of his works on a computer or catalog, it is difficult to comprehend how the work is built from ordinary building
ordinary building materials, such as rope or grey, white and black matte paint. In some of his interactive and spatial works we are also invited to walk into the installation, which instills a physical and mental inspiring drift of physiological, philosophical, and mathematical associations, according to the personal universe of each visitor. In our world of digital images, Canto’s geometric environments are unusually tangible due to their irreducible materiality, while the viewer feels as if plunged into a universe where perception and, with it, movement - time and space -, seem to materialize.

Fred Eerdekens mainly works three-dimensionally with the components of language, material, light and shadow. His works are based on texts he writes himself. He often creates opposing ideas, sometimes words and meanings contradict each other, shift and turn around. His very sculptural work provides the impetus for a world that can only be experienced through words. In the shadow, where light fails, a story is often told of things that are missing, sometimes short, sometimes lyrical or longing.
In addition to these sculptural works, Eerdekens uses a variety of techniques and materials, mostly in watercolors.
Entering the art space of Fred Eerdekens transports the viewer into a semantic landscape in which what one has imagined to be stable meaning is constantly twisted and turned. Is there a better way to illustrate this than to let the audience "turn and turn" themselves to understand the objects? By screwing around the objects, they actually become direct figures of the logic game that dominates the objects. After the linguistic shift and in the wake of poststructuralist thinking, the topography of our mental landscapes has become increasingly complex. The work of Fred Eerdekens proves this and provides a conceptual map of this territory, still unknown in many places.
