Adriaan Diedericks

Allegorical Elegies

ALLEGORICAL ELEGIES

The Uitstalling is excited to showcase an online exhibition from an international reknown artist. This South African sculptor mimics, as it were, the vast landscape of his youth. This can be clearly seen in the way in which his working method continuously develops into a unique three-dimensionality. Using sculptures, he manipulates these messages with, among other things, found wood and plastic that ends up in amazing bronze works of art.

Adriaan Diedericks explores the human body as a vessel where power, glory and inevitable humiliation are being transformed to key concepts in his work, a thought that connects his reflections on masculinity and heraldic history.
