NEVVEN begins the opening of its new gallery in central Gothenburg with a solo presentation by the Belgian artist Tom Volkaert. Focusing on sculpture presented in wondrous and immersive installations, Volkeart works with clay, concrete, epoxy and metals. The creative process, which largely is left to chance, embraces the unpredictable, includes found objects and functions as a comment on consumptions society and its overproduction. Where raw aesthetics meets sci-fi and fantasy, Volkaert’s sculptures and installations take shapes that are organic and totem like, natural and hand made. They underscore and amplify the presence of an insoluble relationship between the artist’s control, the innate force in an organic material and artificial, already existing objects.
Opening: Thursday 29 August, 6–8pm and Thursday 5 September, 12–8pm
