a collage series
In the Urban Perspectives collage series Marte uses strong urban building elements that she cuts from fahionmagazines. With her surgeons knife she meticulously cuts out all the objects in the foreground- be it famous or fashion- and throws them away, until she has the raw buildingblocks she needs to create a new space. With these raw elements, these isolated architectural buildingblocks she creates a new sense of space and possibility. In the collages, made up of roughly 3 or 4 elements, and glued on grey carboard the photographic illusion of depth and perspectice in one element is lifted by the next and together they seem to form a new space.
With these strong architectural spaces made from fragments cut out of fashion magazines Marte Haverkamp seems to create her own world of possibilities, bold spatial designs! On show during This Art Fair 2016.
