“The house is a nocturnal thing, this is seen from the outside, when the lights are turned off.” John Hejduk, Sentences on the house and other sentences [from: Uncontrollable Beauty: towards a new aesthetics, Bill Beckly, David Shapiro, 1998].
These photographs are a selection from a series of architecture photographs Dennis Hambeukers made, inspired by the above quote from John Hejduk.
"The creative process is codetermined by the possibilities of the material, which in my case is zinc. The basic product, a “plate” of zinc, is shaped into an independent object with contrast of form and conduction of light as the creative elements. My sculptures are modeled on Dutch agrarian buildings, which, because of their characteristic closed forms, are in sharp contrast with the open space of their surroundings. In my work I am looking for the borderline between form and space." (txt: Simon Oud)

"My own fascination with illusion and the unusual effects of scale and perspective leads me to dismantle, dissect, and distort everyday objects and appliances. I purposely re-generate the redundant, which enables me to create work that at a first glance is aimed to be familiar, but subtly transforms to be intriguing and not what it first appears to be."
