Marjolein Spitteler about her art
“Starting as a biologist, then as a visual artist, I have been intensely engaged in one research project. This research focuses on life as a phenomenon. Gradually the concept of space has come to play an increasingly important role. Within the limited spatiality of the flat surface, I search for the greatest possible experience of space, in which life and thoughts about this can arise.
The working method I have developed over the years allows the sculpture to develop like an organism, to breathe and to move along with the thoughts of the viewer.”
At Museo, Marjolein Spitteler offers a series of “shadow drawings”. In these drawings the shadow allows spaces to converge in the flat surface. By printing small objects in the paper, illusory and physical space come together. A form in which time plays a role, constantly shifting and moving with the light.
