exhibition of an imaginairy city landscape
Surrounded by the buildings of a city a promenader can get overwhelmed by the architectural grandeur. The cultural achievements that the surrounding architecture breathes are telling stories from now and yesteryears. A different face of a city is the uncanny, sinister or even menacing one that an urban environment can have. These thoughts formed the starting point of a drawing research towards ambivalent circumstances in cities and agglomerations. I use contrasts, conversions and very specific attributes of existing cities as a material to develop imaginary city landscapes.
