Everything We Could Not Keep, works by Eva Spierenburg and Elsbeth Ciesluk; Galerie Maurits van de Laar, The Hague

Eva Spierenburg

The title of the show has a bit of a melancholic undertone, but that is where the absurdism of both artists, Eva Spierenburg (1987) and Elsbeth Ciesluk (1986), leads to.

Both artists in this very well conceived show at Maurits van de Laar gallery seem to be in search of things somewhere in between being materially not there, and lost from mind the moment you think of it.

Spierenburg does so with paintings, drawings, videos and sculptural works and Ciesluk mainly with text works.

Spierenburg’s works have a wide range of aspects, but usually the human body is central to it.

Ciesluk’s works are in between poetry and visual art.

I was very late in visiting this show, the finissage will be next Sunday, so do hurry to see this fine exhibition.
