don’t stand so close to me [2017-2023]
my geometric interpretation of this year’s theme : in touch
almost touching each other trying to connect
one closer than the other almost in touch
LISTEN TO THE AUDIO ABOUT THIS ARTWORK
“Erik Haemers’ artworks are imbued with his love for architecture, constructions, structure and rhythm. He translates his everyday observations into sculptural + geometric works. Exploring different materials, layers + techniques while questioning the limits of fine art by switching back and forth between high-end and ubiquitous materials.
His fascination with order and structure is a foundation of his practice, as well as the subtle interplay between architecture and art.
Some artworks seem to dissolve into the architecture, while others seem like a natural extension of it.”
