Netherlands-based multidisciplinary artist Levi van Veluw is known for his incredible self-portraits.. This year, he has created Origin of the Beginning, a series of new installations with 3 “rooms” covered with more than 30.000 wooden blocks, balls and slats respectively. Each “room” is executed as a life-size installation (4m x 2.5m x 2.5m) together with photographs and videos, with absolutely no digital manipulation.
Portrayed in one piece is a desk, a table lamp, a bookcase. The edge of the table is burned by Levi van Veluw as he had an obsession for fire.These installations are inspired by different aspects of van Veluw's boyhood bedroom, where he spent many solitary hours between the ages of 8 and 14: the Origin of the Beginning.
This installations/performance was on view 21 May – 25 June at Ronmandos gallery in Amsterdam.
