Other details: Extract from Catalogue by exhibition curator Regina van den Berg

For centuries, space was the main frame of reference for the three dimensional sculptural work made of traditional materials. The entry of the element of time in artistic production in the nineteen sixties, led to fundamental changes in the discipline of sculpture. Time-based sculptural works pointed to the fact that in nature there is no stagnation, that everything is in constant change and movement and that our perception depends on both space and time.

Sculptors refer to this by processual acts and by use of new media such as video, photography and digital media. The final artwork which was for centuries the sole aim of artistic creation, now stands beside the open work, the experiment, the performative act and beneath a variety of hybrid forms.

The meaning of the artworks often arises as a result of communicative structures between artists, viewer, artwork, space and time. If meaning is based on perception as well as on realisation and a shift of traditional patterns of perception, then the artwork engages in a dialogue with humans in their environment. Today the discipline of sculpture has become a major field of experimentation and a juxtaposition of artistic expression and issues often emerge from interdisciplinary approaches, such as the current working out of a new understanding of materiality.
