Robin Vermeersch: Floating Points
Volkmar Mühleis, Wouter Meeus
Zwart Huis Brussels, 2019
Robin Vermeersch (1977) works with various media. Sculptures, paintings and drawings show us a kind of cellular world which is rather existential and can be experienced cosmically. The viewer can approach the images in different ways: they can be viewed as autonomous sculptures and paintings that function individually, but they can also be seen in a larger context so that they each have a different meaning and form an alienating universe. The work is characterized by a fascination for the creative process. Robin Vermeersch works from the capricious observation of the miraculous structures of natural elements and materials we don’t see with the naked eye. Robin is fascinated by the visual language that surpasses our routines and limited viewing ability. He makes art magnifying the unseen in sculptures and paintings with an abstract-organic skin. He therefore also appropriates existing organic structures, which he transposes and incorporates into new images. The apparent strangeness of these images seems familiar and natural to us all.
This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition Robin Vermeersch / Floating Points / 5 september – 26 october 2019 at Zwart Huis, Brussels.
