Michael Jacklin, Oculus, 2015 (detail)
Slewe Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Inner Space Outer Space II with new sculptures by Dutch artist Michael Jacklin (*1956).
 
Michael Jacklin, known for his man-sized grid sculptures, made of iron, will exhibit a new series of open iron constructions. It will be his second show with the same title showing sculptures based on events in inner space and outer space. Whereas his first show in 2014 was focusing more on the outer space, this time the inner space will be the main theme with the smallest elements, the particles at the base. Both transparent and small massive spheres are positioned within many open circles of thin staff iron. A subtle play of lines and intervals occurs when you move around them. Jacklin is one of the rare fundamental working sculptors of his generation. He focuses on the specific qualities of the material as well as on the sculptural principles such as mass, rhythm and gravity. Since 1984 he works exclusively with iron. His preference for this material derives from his fascination for iron constructions in architecture.
 
Jacklin exhibits at Slewe Gallery on a regular base since 1995. In 2010 Slewe published a catalog with an overview of his work and a text by Maarten Bertheux. In 2002 he had an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and in 2000 he had a show at the Kunstvereniging Diepenheim. His works have been collected by several public and private collections. He has also done several public commissions in Rotterdam and Amstelveen. Jacklin lives and works in Amsterdam.
