Hanna ten Doornkaat
In the Zero of Form
6 – 16 June 2018
Saturday 16 June at 2.30 pm Hanna ten Doornkaat in conversation with fellow artist Annamarie Dzendrwoskyj.
Mixed media artist Hanna ten Doornkaat uses the gallery as a canvas to revisit and deconstruct Malevich’s ideas behind the Black Square in some of her works.
Hanna ten Doornkaat’s work is an exploration of the possibilities of abstract line drawings and an examination of the relationship between seeing, perception and understanding what is seen or unseen. More recently she has also started to explore the interrelationship, transition and break between drawing, painting and its expansion into space and sculpture.
The repetition of lines and grids as a compositional format are a constant throughout ten Doornkaat’s work and the subject of continuous renewal and reinvention.The process of the work is often secondary to the concept which questions conventional representation. Rather than isolating individual works they often become part of constructions in a space where each work relates or emerges from the other. By trying to overcome boundaries, the ‘between space’ , the work is at once drawing, painting, sculpture and installation.
