Nelleke Cloosterman presents the project Cardshark at CENTRALE | lab (24.11.2022 > 19.03.2023). For this exhibition, Cloosterman creates walls that are shaped like cards and look like they have randomly been spread into the space. The title Cardshark refers to someone who makes money by cheating at card games, as well as to the very cards the artist uses in her paintings as vanitas symbols. This might suggest that the exhibited cards have been thrown away by the cardshark (a gambler), thus echoing the vanitas symbol of gambling with life. The paintings hanging onto the card-walls become windows to Nelleke Cloosterman’s painterly universe. During her work-in-progress at CENTRALE | lab, this universe will expand, a multitude of these ‘windows’ being added, eventually forming a global installation...
