Isabelle Andriessen: Dorm

Her sculptures contain elements that react to each other and their surroundings, so that her works are constantly in motion. Using electricity, cooling systems and chemical processes she causes her sculptures to 'sweat', leak, and crystallize, as though they were actors performing from a script.
Andriessen seeks to give materials a certain viability. She enables her sculptures to act as performers by tapping them into a closed system, causing the materials to be activated throughout the exhibition. Especially for DORM, Andriessen developed new sculptures in which organic shapes fuse with elementary and architectural forms. They refer both to the original function of De Pont – a former wool mill – and to a grim future.
