In 'To Speak on Behalf of Things' Maria Tyakina (b. 1991, RU) speaks about all 'things' possible. Tyakina positions herself as mediator between material and immaterial matters. With ink and rubber she attempts to capture both the tactile appearance and the experience of a thing. The work of Tyakina is characterized by refined, manual crafts work with materials that are functional by nature. In her work she explores the way perception is mediated by objects, and the relation they develop with the body. It is a reaction to the period we live in, in which the digital takes over and the earth is constantly transformed by human action. In the exhibition Tyakina aims to speak on behalf of 'things' that are no longer there, at a time that is yet to begin.
Lauwer is accessible by tram 16 / bus 24 – 1 stop prior to the Gemeentemuseum.
