House of Makers takes part in the exhibition Stringendo by Silvia B. in Galerie Ron Mandos.
Dancer Clotilde Tran gives an intimate performance in close proximity to the audience. The performance builds a tension which moves in and out of balance, in and out of the comfort zones of both performer and audience. In exposing its fragile nature, the performance responds to the sculptures by artist Silvia B.
From the gallery:
Galerie Ron Mandos presents Stringendo, a new series of sculptures by Silvia B. Silvia B. (NL, 1963) is known for her sculptures of hybrid figures; caught between age, gender and culture, between human, animal and doll. In addition to her iconic sculptures she makes drawings, photographs and also curated several projects. Her work is characterized by a constant battle between attraction and repulsion. A duality that comes from her vision of the world, how people behave according to so called codes of civilization and yet are still driven by their instinctive fears and desires.
