Exhibition | Marjan Teeuwen
8 February to 14 April 2018 at Bruce Silverstein Gallery, New York (USA)
From 8 February to 14 April 2018 the exhibition Marjan Teeuwen | Destroyed House will be shown at Bruce Silverstein Gallery in New York. It is the first solo exhibition of Teeuwen's work outside of Europe. The exhibition will show a selection from her Destroyed House-series, also featuring in the book Marjan Teeuwen • Destroyed House, published in September 2017 by Valiz.
In her aptly titled body of work, Destroyed House, Teeuwen reclaims the wreckage of abandoned buildings assembling each fragment in painstakingly detailed installations, set within the original structures. These temporary living artworks are present for their surrounding community to experience, but they ultimately exist only through the carefully composed photographic images which Teeuwen captures for posterity with her large-format camera. Her images illuminate the precarious balance of the power of destruction with the constructive implications of order and function.
