NEW PHOTOGRAPHY & THE EPHEMERAL
Leo Vroegindeweij—Sylvie Bonnot—Zhu Hong
18 Dec 2022 – 19 Mar 2023
Our 2022/23 winter group show explores the ephemeral with a selection of unconventional photography-inspired works, developing perspectives opened by Leo Vroegindeweij’s Ephemeral Project for TMH. The show brings together prints, sculptures, paintings, and installations of LEO VROEGINDEWEIJ, SYLVIE BONNOT, ANDRÉ DE JONG, and ZHU HONG.
Vroegindeweij contributes several prints of photoscanned objects, including an exquisite rendition of Rodin’s sculpted hands, reimagining them as a flame-like trace captured on aluminum. Zhu Hong’s wall mural Amstel—literally ephemeral as it is temporary—finds analogies between the unframed, wall-roughened brushstrokes and her photo-documentation of light on water. André de Jong’s flowers (printed with lyrical precision on varied papers) and Sylvie Bonnot’s nature images (reworked in her “mue” technique) point to the uncanny, strange, and transgressive.
