SHOW BOX #33 JOOST VERMEER
In the work of Rotterdam based artist Joost Vermeer map-based cartography plays an important role. He researches this reoccurring theme through the medium of painting, developing his own cartographical language.
In this SHOW BOX installation his paintings exist as loose fragments within the space. The semiotics of a cartographic reference grid aims to orientate the paintings within this ‘map’, connecting the works to geographical landmarks.
Exhibition: 22/01/2021 – 06/05/2021
Location: Mathenesserweg 211
