Marcha van den Hurk – Sometime Soon
Gallery Lecq presents the new work Sometime Soon by Marcha van den Hurk. The carousel installation Sometime Soon has been made especially for Gallery Lecq. It is a dynamic and existential memorial to waiting and expectation. These aspects transpire in the carousel installation through the means of light and various persons drifting on a panel.
The work and title are a result of the correspondence between the artist and sociologist Lilia Raileanu (USA/ Moldova). Sometime Soon is a beginning of a collaboration. Also the new installation Sometime Soon represents a part of Van den Hurk’s growing series of installations featuring the topic of ‘waiting’, where the experience of waiting is central. In her work, Van den Hurk increasingly uses light, being it static or dynamic.
Van den Hurk works in various media: she makes space filling installations and light sculptures, photographs, drawings, and sculptures or she combines various forms of media. The central element of her work is the relationship between the social and physical environments. She examines how this relationship determines the identity of the human being. The work highlights the lifestyle of certain subcultures or the individualistic existence, as for example the representation of homelessness in her multimedia works.
Marcha van den Hurk’s exhibition is the 20th exhibition at the gallery, which was founded in 2012. Gallery Lecq is situated in a unique place in the former kiosk of the monumental Parkluizen and shows work of contemporary Rotterdam based artists and designers.
The installation Sometime Soon can be seen from sunset to sunrise until 5 March 2017.
