Artist list

Peter Hoogeboom
In English, the word ‘china’ can mean porcelain or a ceramic material. Since he debuted in 1995 with a series of jewellery fashioned of clay Peter Hoogeboom has continued to devise new ways of making ceramics wearable. A stay in Taiwan in 2012 resulted in the collection Chinawear. It consists of porcelain necklaces in which Peter abandons the taut rhythm and smooth finish characterising his earlier collections, instead introducing more freely composed structures. He derived inspiration from the textured surfaces, dotted, and ribbed patterns, of the kinds of manufactured plastic and rubber objects, for instance finger cots, for sale everywhere in Taiwan, which he incorporated in his casting technique. Delicate leaf shapes made of silver are rolled with typical Dutch materials, such as sackcloth and cheesecloth.In Remake earlier works are reiterated as designs, but in different colours or with a different clasp.

Opening: the artist will be present, on Saturday, 12 December, from 4 – 6 PM
