Martin Gabriel, non beton place; The Balcony, The Hague

Sometimes artists need just little space to show their work.

A pop up exhibition space like a shop window can be enough; especially so for multi-disciplinary artist Martin Gabriel (1991) who is occupied with space, even creating it where it is not.

At the moment The Balcony is a shop window at 14 Herenstraat which has an exhibition programme and Gabriel is showing his installation non beton place there.

Reflection and extension play an important role in the work.

It might seem that with a camera (or without one for that matter) the window itself is an obstacle, but on the other hand the reflections in the shop window bring even more space into the composition.
