Who didn’t play with blocks?
Tineke Porck about her bouwwerken:
“In 2019-2021 I made a series of construction works.
While the size is 7.5 x 5 x 2.5 cm, the object can be put down in different ways. You can play with it, so to speak. The structure is made up of beechwood blocks that have gone through many children’s hands. The blocks are worn and have imperfections. This give them an aged look. The materials used are wood, gesso, acrylic and oil paint.
The constructions are a continuation of my 2015-2010 series blockdialogues.”
