CEAC exhibition

Floor Kortbeek was born in 1964 in The Netherlands. Her installations incorporate many different techniques, including painting and sculpting. She chooses wood, glass, mirrors, photography, sound and video as her mediums. In many works she is referring to times of the past, her grandmother’s time, to almost forgotten stories and realities. By revitalizing old pictures combined with mirrors, she shows how we are related to our own past and cultural background.

Gilles Frenken was born in 1961 in The Netherlands. He is a documentary filmmaker and photographer who routinely travels the world making films and books about all kinds of people and cultures. In Xiamen he uses his camera for the first time in his life as a contemporary artist, painting with light to make abstract photographic works. Inspired by the modern architecture of Xiamen, Frenken shows futuristic forms, thin traces of light, on a dark background. It is as if he wants to show a world in space, in heaven, a science-fiction kind of life far from here.
