The exhibition consists of new works created during a two month research project which started during a summer residency in July at the gallery VZL / Contemporary Art and grew during her subsequent residency in Ukiha (Japan). How does the transformation of a flat surface into a 3D object create a new understanding of what space is? What is an object is and how are these notions interrelated? Marieke Gelissen transforms this question into physical encounters with objects and materials, and into performative acts (‘Handelingen’). She uses time as a medium,  pursuing a multidisciplinary experiment, including video, sound, sculpture and live performance.
Marieke Gelissen won the second price for the Theodora Niemeijer Prize 2016, for emerging women artists.
