LiEKE SNELLEN | Home Builders & New Homes
8 November - 13 December 2014

JOEY RAMONE is pleased to present the 1st solo exhibition in the gallery of Dutch artist Lieke Snellen. The private view is on Saturday, November 8th, 5-8pm. The show will run till Saturday, December 13th.

In her work Lieke Snellen (NL, 1980) focuses on architecture and objects, which she connects with the navigation of the human body. In this way she challenges architectural ideologies and social relations. Classic sculptural rules are combined with formal experiments. The assembled sculptural objects are an experiment of possibilities. For her exhibition at JOEY RAMONE she will be showing a combination of old and new work, which could be seen as sculptural doodles, reflecting on something that might have happened during a working day, but could also possibly be build architectural structures.

Lieke Snellen (Nl, 1980) lives and works in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. She was educated at AKV St. Joost in Den Bosch and received her MA she studied at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam (2007). 
She was artist in residence at different places, including Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, Bad Ems (DE) and IAAB/ St. Kaus Australis, Basel (CH) / Rotterdam (NL). Amongst others, exhibitions include 'KM500/3' Kunsthalle Mainz (DE); 'Enigma', Tent. Rotterdam (NL), 'The Lobby', London (UK).
