There is a subtle sense of the liminal that unifies the works in this exhibition; they all in some way wander on the threshold of the unknown.

lab111 ‘stay overnight’ group exhibition with roel brekelmans, awoiska van der molen, curated by rieke righolt

Regular opening times are:

Monday – Friday 9.30 – 23.00h

Saturday & Sunday 14.00 – 23.00h

 

The works of these three photographers suggest an intense experience of the depicted landscapes. Scenes that at first seem recognisable and unimportant become layered through the framing and use of light – making it almost obligatory for one to stop 
and contemplate. For the exhibition, in which interaction was made possible between a more established and two emerging artists, the exhibition site was of great importance. 
At night, the imposing building at Arie Biemondstraat 111 – originally housing an anatomical pathology laboratory – offers a poetic sight and seems to go back to the life 
and work that once took place there. Similarly, the urban landscapes in the photos seem palimpsests: worn and re-used parchments on which earlier texts are still partially readable.
