Day and night

Arendsweg, Rotterdam

Laurien Dumbar presents BEN OFY, an exhibition featuring photographic prints of paint. In 18 window vitrines, visible night and day on Arendsweg, this presentation explores the age-old theme of spatial illusion on a flat surface. Dumbar does this in relation to a contemporary question about the image: “What is real and what is fake?” She uses plastic foil, clay, paper and light to represent the painterly space and creates random situations or scenes with paint, which she then photographs. Without knowing precisely what she will find, Dumbar captures the momentary interaction between spatial illusion and ‘real’ material, such as a paint stroke or plastic.
