Gwenneth Boelens: Riveted

Press release

GRIMM is proud to present Riveted, a solo exhibition by Gwenneth Boelens (1980, Soest) which will feature recent and new work. Her new artist’s book published by Roma Publications will accompany the exhibition.

Introduced in Riveted are a series of sculptures featuring large-scale ceramic tablets offset by a hanging textile piece, a glass negative, a percussive sculpture and a short film. With these works, Boelens strays from representation and alternately probes at the threshold of abstraction. Inspired by the clay tablet’s function as a primitive bearer, she negotiates the physical and metaphysical appearance of the tablets and the performative aspects of marking or inscribing.
