Sammlung Weltensand. Elvira Wersche

Sammlung Weltensand can be called a truly cosmopolitan pro­ject. Elvira Wersche collects different types and colours of sand from all over the world and uses it to construct complex mosaics, composed of geometrical patterns, on the floors of museums, churches and synagogues.

From what initially appears to be a jumble of lines and figures, an ingenious and fascinating spectacle made up of triangles, irregular quadrangles, rhombuses and other polygonal shapes unfolds before the viewer’s eyes. The pattern seems to be in constant motion, changing according your angle of vision and the point on which you focus. What is more, the making of this work has a special dynamic of its own: the work-in-progress format means that visitors are involved as the artwork takes shape.

When the artwork is finally finished, Wersche obliterates it again: in a performance she literally erases the carefully constructed pattern. By doing so, she emphasizes that everything is in constant flux. And that everything is only temporary.

KUNSTRAI ART AMSTERDAM

- post: february 15, 2019

This year we will again participate in the KunstRAI Art Amsterdam, which lasts from Thursday 18 to Monday 22 April – a day longer than usual (2nd Easter day)! You can find us at booth 24. We show work by four artists.

Roos Holleman will be represented with a special edition entitled An Inordinate Fondness, on the occasion of her book The Center of Attention, to be published in April. We’ll show a monumental painting plus a multiple of Jan Maarten Voskuil, in response to the publication in March of his monograph Round Trip. Robert Zandstra will be represented with a series of drawings in response to the leporello Stage of Being, which was published in September 2018. Finally we’ll show new paintings by Seet van Hout.
