ALCHIMIA NOVA – AnneMarie Maes solo at n0dine projectroom Brussels
AnneMarie Maes creates objects with a range of biological, digital and traditional media, including bacteria and other organisms. The Alchimia Nova-works were generated out of the interstice between nature, art and science. They make the invisible visible.
She creates with a range of biological, digital and traditional media, including bacteria and other organisms. The choice of materials is a primary aspect of her artworks. The physical and aesthetic features of the materials she works with determine the forms of the individual sculptures, objects or textiles.
In my practice, the concept of making and producing sculptures and textiles is a form of research. The (sometimes long term) artistic process happens in layers, by actions of adding and subtracting. The volume of an object and its relationship with nature (micro/macro) are essential elements of my work, the concept of scale is very important. The choice of materials I work with is a primary aspect of my artistic research. I prefer natural and organic components, and I create often in collaboration with living organisms such as bees, bacteria and plants. The physical and aesthetic features of the materials I work with determine the forms of the individual modules, sculptures or textiles. The resulting sculptures and textiles are appealing to touch and smell, but they also attract the viewer in an aesthetic and visual way.
