Artist Makes Mesmerizing Temporary Kaleidoscopic Art From Thousands Of Gems

Published 3 years ago

Suzan Drummen lets her art take her where it will. This Dutch artist never plans her works in advance and lets her installations guide her instead. Her works are made of hundreds pebbles, shiny glass pieces, tiny mirrors and other magpie lures. Drummen plans every work around its place of exhibition: the height, the light and even the walking distance of viewers matters.

“I would like this open-minded uninhibited moment preceding the attribution of meaning to last as long as possible,” Drummen said in an interview. “This open-mindedness, the openness of that first glance, are essential for me: being there and looking! I do not understand the world, am amazed, again and again beguiled and enthralled. I want to condense and accentuate.”
