The cheerfully coloured sculptures by Jessica Stockholder are always made out of the weirdest materials and end up in unique sculptures of objects like an orange shopping basket or an old bathtub. This artist never ceases to amaze me with her absurd but very accessible assemblages.
The work of American sculptor and installation artist Jessica Stockholder explores the borders between painting, sculpture and space. Her shapes and colours turn spaces upside down, and her usage of everyday objects raises questions about what is really valuable and what not. She curated the exhibition Stuff Matters for the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, exhibiting the highlights from her own body of work, but also showcasing a work especially made for this exhibition, and more than 60 works of art of about 45 other artists that seem to interact with her creations.
Inez de Coo (1982) lives and breathes cinema. She studied at art academies in The Hague and London after which she began working as a professional contemporary video artist. During her Film and Photographic Studies she started researching the architecture of cinema. When she’s not working she’s discussing politics or trying to solve world problems. This hobby also reflects in her programming, resulting in a pick of exciting cinema and visual arts.
