The Groninger Museum presents a show with the artist Maartje Korstanje and designer Nacho Carbonell
22 November 2014 to 22 March 2015
This fall the Groninger Museum presents an exhibition with much new work by artist Maartje Korstanje (Goes, 1982) and designer Nacho Carbonell (Valencia, 1980). Specific choices of material and their extraordinary application are important aspects of their work. The cycle of life and death is also a major source of inspiration to Maartje Korstanje, and her large irregularly formed cardboard sculptures occasionally seem to come to life. To Nacho Carbonell, animation – coming to life – is an important theme. In his work he investigates the relation that humans have with objects and things. Retreat, seclusion or hiding in hollow forms is a characteristic feature of his work.
