On July 11 we will have the finissage for this exhibition.
Abundance, desire and inability as displayed on the internet are an important source in the work of both Petra van Noort and Niels Post. Both artists use extremely labor-intensive ways of working to convert the online scrolling-culture into drawings and sculptures.
Petra van Noort draws portraits of Instagirls. Women who post thousands of photos of themselves on Instagram in the hope of a career as an influencer but only have few followers. Van Noort follows them and based on posted selfies and visual elements from their Instagram feed, she builds up her large collage-like drawings.
Niels Post saws the textual waste from his spam filter into wooden wall sculptures. From long sentences that fit into a space to a new series of works in which the readability of the text is less important.
Especially for the exhibition at NL = US and for the first time, Van Noort and Post have made five works in which Van Noort’s painting work comes together with Post’s hand-sawn spam texts
