Over the last ten years, Rob Voerman
has built up a large oeuvre of sculptures, installations, graphics and other work. He creates various forms of fictive architecture in which the romanticism of self-built structures opposes destruction, terror and threat. Voerman’s constructions are fashioned from ‘tattered’ materials: cardboard, salvaged wood, found objects, etc. The work hovers between apocalyptic visions and optimism about human potential. Aftermath
presents various approaches and perspectives from which to explore his work. | more
