Working at the intersection of materiality and consciousness, Newmarket-based Katja van den Enden creates immersive, thoughtful sculptural installations that interrogate visual tensions and subconscious thought. Grounded in form, her laboriously crafted works not only challenge us to take pause and explore materiality and shape, they invite participation and engagement.

Bringing together two bodies of recent work, Scattered/Accumulation poetically engages with the intangible nature of psychology and memory, each sculpture delicately interacting with shadow and light. At times, the shadow becomes more substantial than the sculpture itself, eliciting visual tensions and encouraging visitors to consider the association between how the characteristics of light affect the materials in it.

Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, January 11 from 1 – 3pm. Artist remarks will begin at 1:30 pm.
