AnneMarie van Splunter: Salina
The Glazen Huis, September 21 – November 30 2014
Salina from September 21 – November 30 2014. In the front space of the Glazen Huis, AnneMarie van Splunter creates a sculpture of salt. For this groundwork, 3000 kilos of salt is poured on the floor to form a work that appears as a salina, an intense white waving landscape of evaporated seawater. The staggered tempo of the tiles evokes the impression that the sculpture is cut from a larger whole and could be endlessly extended. It is expected that the humid salt will form new crystals in the course of the exhibition. This formal sculpture, which evokes an energy field or which could be seen as a swinging variation on the floor pieces of Carl Andre or the white reliefs of Jan Schoonhoven, not only make an appeal to our visual senses but also to those of smell and touch.
Salina is supported by the Stokroos Foundation and Akzo Nobel.
