A new solo exhibition by artist Lizan Freijsen is now on view. Softening architecture, covering surfaces, carpets are used to dampen the acoustics in the gallery space of NL=US Gallery Rotterdam.
Freijsen's inspiration remains fungi, they transform waste like unusable oil and plastics into a fertile material, there is a circular process that potentially enables new life. It is her mission to translate these, to the eye, slow and invisible processes into a sensory experience, hoping to increase the appreciation for microorganisms, the world of 'the small'. She aims for awareness, reuse of resources and care for the immediate living environment.
Jap Sam Books published the award winning publication The Living Surface: an Alternative Biology Book on Stains by Lizan Freijsen. This publication gives an overview of her extensive photo-archive with a wide-range of categories of traces and decay and a selection of her unique hand-made carpets, tapestries and blankets.
