Margaret Lansink, Natsukashi, 2019 | collotype print by Benrido Atelier on handmade Washi paper, reworked by Margaret with 23Kt gold leaf | 56,5 x 41 cm | ed. 2 + 1 AP

This year, instead of closing down for the summer we decided to stay open and to prolong the presentation of Margaret Lansink that was on show for the Snd Hazenstraat Bienale. We kept all Margaret’s collages and collotypes on view and accompanied them with a presentation of the selected works from Miho Kajioka.

The bridging link between the two artists is poetry of their intuitive, personal imagery that addresses Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi. Wabi roughly means ‘the elegant beauty of humble simplicity’, while sabi stands for ‘the passing of time and subsequent deterioration’ – both of the two elements are to be found in the duo presentation of Lansink & Kajoka.

On show at Galerie Caroline O’Breen until August 15th, with the new summer opening hours: Friday-Saturday 12-6pm.
