Impression of 'Motives/Motifs', my solo exhibition at ART23 in Guangzhou, China.

“Motive is a word for movement, but also a reason for doing something, and also a motif, such as in music or in art. My ‘motives' are a series of works made during a three-month residency at ART23. The works in the series share a common form of locomotion: circular motion from an electric motor. From this simple starting point, different expressions of movement, sound, light and shadows emerged, by experimenting and playing with materials and objects that I made, found, bought or combined. I call the works ‘studies’, because I consider them part of a growing and evolving process rather than fixed and static end points.”
More to come!
