‘Archetypes’ by Dylan Shields at DISplay, the window exhibition space of the RE:Search:Gallery.
April 20 – June 14, 2020
NP3 is closed, the sculptures are only visible from the St. Walburgstraatt, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In 2013 the English artist Dylan Shield developed his exhibition Archetypes especially for the container art space MOBi. Fascinated by the mythological power of historical scenes he built with everyday home-garden-and-kitchen equipment such as tape and cardboard boxes his new, monumental, cardboard sculptures in a landscape of Greek mythology. With a unique and recognizable artistic handwriting Dylan convinces as well in large, monumental as also small sculptures. His unique way of working, the way he controls the unruly and rigid material and works it out in perfection up to the last detail, arouses amazement and admiration.
Four of those cardboard works remained in stock at NP3. The current circumstances create the opportunity to represent the very detailed, mythological, impressive sculptures to the passing audience along the St. Walburgstraat.
