The exhibition “Palpable Surfaces” will take place, organized by the contemporary art space Tilde in Amsterdam and Trixie, a gallery in The Hague managed directly by the artists. The exhibition will feature works by the Spanish artist Nora Aurrekoetxea, as well as other international artists such as Laura Jatkowsky, Bronwen Jones and Matchteld Rullens.
“Palpable Surfaces” plays with the idea of materiality of artworks, the diversity of materials used and their interaction with the viewer. The relationship between the material and immaterial make these experiences leave a mark or other on us.
Nora Aurrekoetxea was born in the Basque Country (Bilbao, 1989), but currently living and working in the Netherlands. She was one of the artists that received the ARCO/Community of Madrid Award for Young Artists during this year’s edition of this contemporary art fair. Nora Aurrekoetxea is interested in philosophical, psychological and sociological issues related to the emotional aspects of human interactions in intimacy. She uses her own experiences to explore both the personal and the collective.
