Tandem – Manon Wertenbroek

Nurtured by emotions and feelings such intimate than can’t find suitable words, Manon Wertenbroek‘ work literally creates, models the images through a material and multi-layered intervention, where clay and paper become sperimental medium and the space could be concurrently lived and perceived. In this necessity of gift back a materiality to the inner energy, the sculpture acts a vital and spatial role, an anchor so as a destination. In the series ‘Tandem’, working alongside her brother, Manon combines the creativity process of the image creation with the formal research of a shape, fixed thanks to the narrative power of photography, last chapter of her quest of a composite portrait of emotions and projections.
