At Ballroom Project #3, Galerie Caroline O’Breen presents works by Anne Geene and Antoinette Nausikaä.
As a visual artist, Anne Geene (NL, 1983) captures the hidden beauty of plants and animals. With the help of photography, Geene investigates, collects and organises the world around her. The camera objectively records the materials in which Geene is looking for visual similarities, patterns and phenomena. Eventually, her findings are analysed and cataloged according to an apparent logic. Her interpretation of the data is strictly personal and refers to our urge to regulate and understand the world around us. The project presented at Ballroom #3 is a site-specific work, created during an artist in residency in Portugal this year.
Antoinette Nausikaä (NL, 1973) creates site-specific investigative projects in places where nature and culture coincide. It is the balance between the two that fascinates her. For this presentation at Balrom #3, Nausikaä selected works from her Mountains and Rivers projects and assembled a new installation. She produced the figurines and photographs during her travels. Through her work, Nausikaä explores the interconnectedness in our everyday environment. Asking questions such as: How does the human abstract relate to the natural organic? The mundane to the transcendent? Permanence to impermanence? How to express the ineffable?
