In this exhibition Liesbeth Henderickx will show her new work, in which she combines an interior and exterior space by using the ecological meditation that is applied within the bonsai culture.The sculptures in the exhibition combines materials such as, cobblestones, fragments of building blocks and wildflowers.
Liesbeth her artistic practice often deals with techniques which are slow and meditative in nature. She is looking for values, meaning and origin of certain materials that are present in the urban landscape. These materials are used in a landscape that is continuously subject to physical changes resulting from fleeting and architectural trends. Consequently, they have therefore lost their relation to the energy emanating from palpable matter itself. As the aestheticization of the raw material fades out the material’s true character, one is carried away from its origin. Her work is not demonstrative. It is based on the awareness of matter and is often a play of the visible and non-visible. She seek for the viewer to look again, more like an ecological meditation.
