27.11.2009 ‘If distance was an object between us’, an exhibition by Elizabeth Rowe

Opening exhibition: November 27th 2009, 19h30

'The drip, drip effect.’ (detail) 2009.

Elizabeth Rowe presents new collages, sculptures and drawings made from material she has accumulated during her residency in Rotterdam.

Using objects that she has found in the street, bought from second hand shops, newspapers, magazines and books, Rowe has processed the mass of stuff she has gathered by cutting up, reassembling or drawing over. The resulting works incisively interrupt different personal, political and historical realities, walking the line between irreverent and heart rending.
