One of the smallest galleries in The Hague, Vonkel shows different aspects in Ter Weele’s work, some of them not lacking monumentality.
Basic materials of Ter Weele’s works are photo negatives, especially of abandoned or more or less forgotten places.
She recycles her materials both substantively and materially, bridging the gap between photo collage and drawing.
The title Achter het zichtbare (Behind the Visible) is taken quite literally, regarding the windows and doors of the gallery.
Ter Weele is digging into the meaninglessness of places around us, giving them new life by way of photographic remembrance, deconstruction and of abstraction.
As such her work may see interesting developments to come.
Keep it in mind!
