Poppositions 2015: Michiel Hilbrink – It is too early in our relationship for that, too soon too (various dimensions)

Poppositions off-fair, Brussels

With the sculptures in this site-specific installation, Michiel Hilbrink explores the possibilities of putting a finger on the place where one’s focus turns from mental to physical perception. From word to material. He tries to capture this moment of turning by extending it into the exhibition space, where it is paralleled as a three-dimensional snapshot of a gone moment. Hilbrink’s sculptures are manifestations that suggest meaning but a not clearly anchored or directly readable. A specific openess is doubled by titles that evoke possible relationships and narratives. The things that inhabit the exhibition space echo logics that belong to our everyday environment.
