Void

Void is an installation about energy, a person who is not there, but whose presence can be presumed, and a solid wind blows from the east. The two are connected, but the 'how' is an open story.

Karin van der Molen

The green world is my canvas and my main source of inspiration. The fields, forests, grasses and rivers invite me to engage and to question the contemporary separation of humans and nature. Usually I make site specific art with locally sourced materials, seducing myself and the passer-by to see and enter nature in a new way. With my environmental art I invite to encourage, amplify and intensify our imagination and to open up to our surroundings. I am fascinated by the different aspects of growth. How nature grows, how growth gets out of tune, how the growth of one either hinders or stimulates the growth of another. In my latest artworks examples of human culture are translated into natural shapes, such as crockery growing on trees as a fungus, or ‘pipelines’ made out of hay and willow. Beyond the history, humour and esthetics of the pieces lies the open question:”What am I doing here?”

Sea Horse
Sea Horse is inspired by a small antique bronze sculpture found in a temple dedicated to Poseidon, the god of the sea, and situated nearby Kalamata, my hometown. It provides an insight how people living about 2.500 years ago in Greece thought a mythical horse living in the sea would look like. The rare ancient miniature figurine is on continuous display in the archeological museum in Kalamata and it delivers an impression how mental and mechanical skills can turn spiritual ideas into visual and haptic objects. I do admire the practical way of thinking of the early artists and intend with this modern piece of art to raise awareness for these antique skills. This piece was initially created in plaster and additionally cast in bronze only recently. The bronze stand is part of the sculpture and cannot be disconnected.

Nester
Zeit und Licht sind untrennbar miteinander verbunden. Schauen wir in den Sternenhimmel, so schauen wir stets in die Vergangenheit. Das Licht von Sternen die wir wahrnehmen ist oft tausende von Lichtjahren entfernt. Ein Nest aber ist ein Blick in die Zukunft. Hier wurde oder wird etwas geboren und wir blicken erwartungsvoll auf das, was da heranwächst. Ob gut oder nicht wird sich zeigen.

A Moment in a Glance 1917-2017
A young man, bald shaven, holding a skull in his hands. We don't know what he thinks, what he feels, who he is. His eyes are closed and he seems lost in concentration, his fingers rest firmly on the skull of another soldier. Was it a young man who died a century ago in France, perhaps? One stares at us, the other looks inside.

MODULES II
The cuboid-like shape is a modified Platonic volume. It becomes a module in an architectural structure or a setting that can be hidden or visible. Inspired by the traces of old buildings one might find in an ancient place, the installation calls to mind how these crumbling individual components now only serve as silent witnesses. However, at one time may have been the key element of a wall, or ceiling, etc. Regardless of their prior functionality, the aesthetic potential overrides the previous story.
