Opening: zaterdag 9 februari van 16.00 tot 18.00 uur
On Saturday 9 February Galerie Bart is opening a duo exhibition of work by Sabi van Hemert and Yvonne Lacet. You are cordially invited to join us between 4 and 6 pm!
The sculptures of Sabi van Hemert (b. 1967) evoke associations with people and animals. They portray the balance between many conflicting feelings and thoughts. The choice of materials gives the works an estranged, sensual, tough and vulnerable character. Sabi graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 2001.
For her photographs, Yvonne Lacet (b. 1980) uses cardboard and paper to make a simplified version of everyday scenes. She eliminates all the frills, reducing to its essence what she wants to portray. For her latest work, Yvonne was inspired by cities and the night-time. Yvonne Lacet graduated in 2004 from the Utrecht School of the Arts. The same year she received the Steenbergen Grant and the Piet Bakker Prize. In 2006 she won the Audience Award of the XLR exhibition by Kunstuitleen Utrecht/Bureau Beyond.
Exhibition: 7 February through 15 March 2008
Opening: Saturday 9 February, 4 to 6 pm
