Tentoonstelling I Exhibition
In for a treat? SUGAR, the collaborative exhibition by Attila Buonsenso, Kyra Nijskens and Victor Crepsley, is taking De Apotheek by storm. It's a feast for the senses that'll have you questioning whether you're living in a saccharine dream or neon nightmare.
This exhibition is a delightful mix of plastic souvenirs, immortal butterflies and hypnotic rainbow-colored collages that come together to create a realm that is both sweet and unsettling.
As you wander trough the exhibition, you'll be transported to a world where nothing is quite as it seems. Abandoned flowers glitter in the light, but as you get closer, you notice that they are not quite real. They may look like they've been plucked from a candy-colored garden, but their sharp edges and artificial shine hint at something more sinister lurking just beneath the surface. These objects are remnants of a once-vibrant society that has become obsessed with the pursuit of fleeting pleasures.
And the butterflies? They are beautiful, sure, but there's something eerie about the way they seem to hover in midair. It's almost as if they're frozen in time, trapped in a moment that is both stunning and haunted. You can't help but wonder what kind of magic was used to make them immortal and what kind of price had to be paid for that kind of power.
But perhaps the most dazzling aspect of the exhibition are the hypnotic collages. You'll find yourself getting lost in their kaleidoscopic patterns and vibrant hue's. It's like being sucked into a vortex of candy-coated chaos and you can't help but feel both thrilled and terrified by the experience.
SUGAR promises a sensory overload that will satisfy even the most insatiable of appetites, leaving a bittersweet aftertaste.
