Artists presented

Upstream Gallery proudly presents Sculpting the Internet, the first solo exhibition by Jan Robert Leegte (NL, 1973) with the gallery. Being among the first artists who were involved in the 90s net art movement, Leegte challenged the new materiality that was provided by the Internet from the perspective of a sculptor. Working with materials that have been in constant transformation due to the shifting technological and cultural ecosystem that is the net, his works too flowed in and out of forms of manifestation, and in and out of the net. During Sculpting the Internet, Leegte presents both new and existing works made with the materials he has loved and worked with all those years.
