maarten vanden eynde – rave nature
the visually compelling ‘rave nature‘ (2005) by dutch artist maarten vanden eynde was installed at the maastricht cultutral event festival cement (=concrete).
what really struck me though was its first glance similarity in tone to the mono ha artist koji enokura’s piece ‘wall’ (1971) from the ’71 biennale de paris. a closer look reveals conceptual differences but, when looking through maarten’s web site i noticed another work, mo(nu)mentum, that had strong visual connections to another mono ha artist piece, nobuo sekine’s, ‘phase – mother earth‘ (1968).
either way, lots of really great, interesting work to look through at maarten’s web site.
+ here’s a little tip. when you click on works>portfolio and you end up at the first, most recent project, click to the right but, click to the left too… and it makes sense in a chronology way but, it took me a while to figure it out…
what can i say, it was early in the morning when i was there.
