EXPO /// FRI. 4 SEPTEMBER – SUN. 4 OCTOBER
Lentesneeuw is an installation by Anne-Marie van Sprang that consists of forty five hanging sculptures, depicting in a cloud a delicate and still world.
These fragile objects are tiny in size but great in appearance. The installation is populated by small stylized human figures. They carry funny details such as extreme long fingers, lots of arms pointing everywhere, labyrinths for the blood circulation and feet that are way too big for their narrow bodies.
Van Sprang looks at the world by taking her time. For us her visuals are impressions, but what hides behind them that releases our emotions?
Anne-Marie van Sprang (1960) studied at the AKI Academy for Visual Arts in Enschede, at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht and had a residence at the European Ceramic Center (EKWC) in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Her work has been awarded several times. She exhibits both solo and in groups, including Museum Beelden aan Zee, the Hague and Ceramics Museum Het Princessehof in Leeuwarden.
Lentesneeuw was shown in the summer of 2019 in the Nieuwe Kerk in Middelburg. In TAC Eindhoven it will be on view in an adapted version.
