Eb

“Living with nature, history, color and environment is the principal source of inspiration of the work of studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters. The exhibition “Eb” (low tide) talks about the aesthetics of natural water and the traces in the landscape. The raw nature of the Dutch Wadden Sea area is trapped in various items ranging from ceramics to organic fabrics and polyester panels.”

Waddenzee Herbaria

“We are often inspired by plants and used them as natural material in previous works. This time we were intrigued by seaweeds that we found in the Wadden Sea. They are beautiful drifting and flowing through the water. In a way we wanted to catch this moment and bring it home with us, which of course is impossible. By using polyester and special pigments we tried to capture the beauty of the weeds floating in the sea in an object.”
