On Sunday 3 May, the fourth solo exhibition will open at Club Solo. In this exhibition, Voebe de Gruyter (1960, The Hague) will show earlier work, such Chewing Gum and Its Stubborn Persistance(1994), along with more recent work. At 3.30 PM during the opening on 3 May and on 17 May, Voebe will take visitors on a tour through exhibition, giving live explanations of aspects of the exhibited works on her path.
De Gruyter’s work can be described as narrative conceptual art. She uses drawing as a central technique, around which almost any material is used to make up the image. She has a fairly direct way of expressing her thoughts, ideas and observations on paper. For instance, in Kauwgomtekeningen (1994) she investigated her suspicion that information can penetrate small particles – that the sentences spoken by people who are chewing gum are transferred to that gum.
De Gruyter’s works are constantly moving; they are omnipresent and in an endless state of being.
