OUT OF THE DARK

OUT OF THE DARK

RALF WESTERHOF

THE NETHERLANDS

Ralf Westerhof uses wire and light to create spatial drawings that changes the perception of the audience based on their point of view. The shapes of the artwork, deemed completely innocent a few years ago, offer completely different interpretations in times of paranoid hysteria of the mass media today. In this way Out of the Dark thematizes the image of the enemy and puts forth its ambiguous appearance as it is manifested on the level of the collective memory, or, respectively, through mediated images.

About Ralf Westerhof

Ralf Westerhof started his creative career as a theatre scenographer and a visual artist creating several kinetic sculptures. These spatial drawings, inspired by Egon Schiele, are made of hand-bent wires that retain their shape through a number of vertical lines that hang from a mobile. In 2014, he took part in the Amsterdam Light Festival and this resounding performance enabled him to subsequently realize a series of new productions and exhibitions all over Europe, as well as in Asia and South America.
