the work of Lenneke van der Goot arrises by drawing, scratching, erasing, wrinkling and cutting. For her, the combination of intuitive and structured actions is of great importance. She uses her drawings to shape her own imaginary worlds. They are places that you can imagine existed, but that are independent of reality. They invite the viewer to look long and extensively, in order to make an imaginary wandering in it. In our urban environment every square meter seems to be functionally used. In her drawings, Van der Goot advocates dysfunctional structures. They are impressive, enigmatic, fragile or very massive. The spaces raise the question of whether you can enter and what their function is. There are ultimately more questions than answers. We often see abstract and mathematical forms, made very precisely with a sense of depth. If you look closer, you see that they wring. The imperfection is part of the work and emphasizes the maker's hand.
