The stuff we’re made off
Joost Gerritsen latest work shows spacial constructions made from a wide range of used and found materials. An environmental approach that connects with his self sustainable way of living. His personal and extensive visual language shows us traces of science, poetry and alchemy.
The nature of things.
With my latest works I want to give rubbish a voice. Everything speaks, mumbles, sings or shouts. But often the voices are not heard. As the objects blend in with there surrounding. A spoon does not sing as it’s in the kitchen drawer. A chair does not grumble when it’s placed besides a table.
Only when objects are set in a different habitat they start to talk, sing and dance. I want my latest sculptures to reach out and talk, shout or whisper.
