Paul Woods in NordArt International Art Exhibition
Kunstwerk Carlshütte, Vorwerksallee, 24782 Büdelsdorf, Germany
10 June – 8 Oct 2017
Since 1999 the NordArt has established itself as one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary art in Europe which takes place anually in the summer months. The NordArt is an overall work of art in its own right and is designed as such each year. More than 200 international artists, selected by a jury, present a comprehensive panorama of contemporary art. Each individual work not only speaks for itself but also creates new perspectives when seen juxtaposed against the unique backdrop offered by the Carlshütte and the adjacent historical sculpture park.
Aileen Hamilton investigates themes of displacement, dis-location and our relationship with a changing landscape. The interplay between 2D and 3D environments is an integral part of Aileen’s process where she moves back and forth between depth and flatness, her drawings growing out of the wall and interacting with the architectural space.
Opening Wednesday 19th July at 7pm
