On the Soft Edge of Space

The first monograph of artist/photographer Marleen Sleeuwits

'On the Soft Edge of Space' is a 276 pages hardcover book which gives an overview on the works Marleen Sleeuwits made over the last eight years. The book has become an artwork in itself adding an extra dimension to her oeuvre.
 

"Dutch contemporary artist Marleen Sleeuwits, known for her photography, objects and installations, challenges the imagination in her new artist book, On the Soft Edge of Space. In her visual experiment, the artist presents a four-tiered representation of space: her own photographs of 'in-between' spaces are placed in a scale model, which she then photographs and arranges in the space of a book. The elegantly designed hardcover publication, covering seven years of work and with 200 full-bleed images, creates a maze-like, immersive experience for the viewer. The bare walls of the model offer no context so the viewer feels projected into a timeless vacuum. As we leaf through these rooms, we wonder: when will these spaces come to life and who will lead the way the room or the user? Like the Light and Space artists of Southern California, Sleeuwits touches upon questions of how spatial qualities alter the viewers perception viscerally."

The city of Brno has a proud tradition of functionalist architecture from the interbellum period. This is not without reason, however many years have passed since then. During her residency in Brno Marleen Sleeuwits has aimed her lens at mainly socialist architecture. Searching for specific facets she defines the sentiment with which these interiors were originally conceived. For the exhibition 'One On One' in the Brno House of Arts Sleeuwits puts architectural interiors on the map. Their idiosyncratic beauty and the mere fact that they were intentionally designed by an architect does not fail to produce more than a hint of surprise in the viewer.


Brno si zakládá na své tradici centra funkcionalistické architektury meziválecˇného období. Ne neprávem, faktem ale je, že od té doby už uplynulo hodneˇ vody. Marleen Sleeuwits beˇhem svého pobytu v Brneˇ obrátila svuj objektiv pátrající po specifických emocích v architekturˇe na detaily prˇevážneˇ socialistické architektury. Pro výstavu One On One v Domeˇ umeˇní tak na mapu zanesla architektonické interiéry, u kterých nás neˇkdy prˇekvapí urcˇitá krása a cˇasto už jen fakt, že je kdy neˇjaký architekt s urcˇitým úmyslem navrhl.
