|We are excited to announce Dutch artist Levi van Veluw’s first official publication. Save the date: 7 September 2013 book presentation and solo exhibition at Gallery Ron Mandos, Amsterdam.
Origin of the Beginning offers an overview of all photographs, drawings, installations, sculptures and videos produced by Levi van Veluw from 2006 till 2013. This very extraordinary book is an artwork in itself. Besides beautiful artwork reproductions, the publication contains a special handmade wooden block, which has been placed inside a cut out square hole that perforates the book. Visible from the front cover throughout the whole publication, this wooden element refers to a number of van Veluw’s art works and can be considered an essential base element by which his work is built up.
|The series of work entitled Origin of the Beginning consists of photographs, drawings,installations,sculptures and videos in which the artist draws memories from his own childhood to thematically and narrative developing of his own brand of self-portraiture. These neatly structured works refer to his obsessive attempts to gain control of his life. The daily struggle to regulate this chaos is the central theme of this series and simultaneously van Veluw’s reality. His work is compelling, melancholic and above all visually stunning.
