Dear art friends,

I proudly present “Close”, my latest work. It will be unveiled at De Aanschouw, the smallest gallery in Rotterdam. It is an honour to be invited by guest curators Art Butchers.

“Close” is an illuminated engraving*, depicting a portrait of what might be a helmeted noble woman. Her head seems to consist out of two halves, exposing city like machineries inside. An android knight, a 16th century quantum tech character with a lavishly ornamented collar, buzzing with nano matter that wants to come alive.

She is a SellFable creature, asking us: “As you grow older as a species, do you come any closer to what it means to be gifted with life?”

I would like to invite you to the opening, raise a glass and have a chat. The work will be displayed for exactly one week.

Details of the opening:

Date: Thursday, 14 June
Time: 21.00 – 21.30h
Location: Café De Schouw, Witte de Withstraat 80, Rotterdam

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact studio@nessed.nl. I am looking forward to welcoming you to the unveiling of “Close”.
