From March 3rd until 1st April 2012, Galerie Brandt presents the fascinating Make it Yourself exhibition of Belgian artist & sculptor Kim De Ruysscher.
Don’t miss the opening this Saturday, March 3rd from 16.00 to 19.00 with guest speaker Roos van Put.
This is the second exhibition of Kim De Ruysscher at Amsterdam’s Galerie Brandt. As the title suggests, the Make it Yourself collection takes inspiration from the everyday tools artists and craftsmen use to create their works of art. This exhibition is like stepping in to an artist’s supply shop with every conceivable tool on display. Except Kim De Ruysscher has sculpted each tool using such noble materials as marble and stone, with incredible attention to detail. A use-once-and-discard tube of tube of paint becomes immortal and timeless in its new stone form. This a gentle nod to the Pop Art Culture while reinforcing the ancient traditions of sculpting and use of stone.
