Sentience // Michiel Kluiters

Saturday, September 09, 2023 — Saturday, October 28, 2023

Michiel Kluiters (1971, Amsterdam) makes monumental, painterly photographs of empty spaces that you can step right into. The work is on the plane between sculpture, photography and painting. They are images of improvised architectural scale models that he builds in his studio and then photographs in razor-sharp detail. The combination of light and shadow, point of view, perspective, color, texture and details result in an alienating effect with a signature all its own. The images seem primarily addressed to the hands rather than the eyes: they long to be touched, stroked, felt.
