Simona Ambrosini and Ingrid Van der Heyden's mixed-media exhibition "Insight", focusing on the relationship between man and nature, opens at Neilson Hays Library tomorrow.
In a constant search for a real dialogue with nature, the two explore the relationship in different ways.
Ambrosini explores the theme of sight, as in a cathartic moment.
Resin, metals and light are used as material filters for this process. Light and transparent, the materials are raised and reflect a world that is both organic and inorganic.
Cuts and fretwork represent tangles and wounds of the soul and of nature. Shelves of rubber provide an impermeable barrier to hold and protect the seeds of our thoughts from the destructive forces of the universe.
Van der Heyden, meanwhile, takes a more intimate approach of exposure and vulnerability to juxtapose the suffering of nature with the suffering of the flesh and soul.
Insight will be on show at Neilson Hays Library’s Rotunda and Garden Cafe galleries from tomorrow until June 30. The opening reception is on Saturday at 6pm. The library is located on Surawong Road and opens Tues-Sun from 9.30am to 5pm. Call 02-233-1731.
