Levi Van Veluw

in his solo exhibition 'origin of the beginning', dutch artist levi van veluw makes use of 30,000 wooden blocks, balls, and slats
to blanket three rooms that recall his childhood bedroom. the life-size installations are accompanied by photographs and videos
that not only bring literally to life the current installation, but also draw up the artist's often-sombre memories of youth.

known for his self-portraits which involve the layering of diverse materials onto his head, van veluw creates in this exhibition
an entire narrative framework, without neglecting his emphasis on materiality, texture, and aesthetic.
