After his highly successful AQUABIT installation in 2017, Dutch artist Peter Vink returns to the gallery with a new site-specific concept. AQUABIT II is inspired by the space drawings of Bauhaus teacher Josef Albers and his ability to create perspective, imaginary spaces.
Peter Vink proposes a rotating structure derived from the architectural environment, which builds a three-dimensional drawing in the gallery space. The visitor is invited to discover the surroundings from a different perspective.

Press release
Peter Vink

Peter Vink [De Bilt, 1974] makes works that are site-specific. He incorporates the specific characteristics of the space or environment, aiming to emphasise or strengthen what is present in order to influence and highlight our experience of the site. By breaking through our conditioned perception, Vink hopes to change the way people experience their environment.

Peter Vink studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. He has exhibited on an international level and has realised various art commissions in the public domain. For the Government Buildings Agency [Rijksgebouwendienst] he created a work for the joint depot of Naturalis, Museum Boerhaave and the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities [RMO] in Leiden. Commissioned by Skor, he has recently realised a light installation in Enschede. Peter Vink was artist in residence at Platform China, Beijing, China Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
