Volta 8 - Basel
The Ron Mandos booth will showcase a unique drawing portraying a room with
empty cabinets and 150 floating icosahedron shapes. This room is an abstract representation
of van Veluw's boyhood bedroom. The neatly structured cabinet refers to his obsessive
attempts to gain control of his life. Although the geometric shapes are symmetrical, they
move through the space in a chaotic way. The daily struggle to regulate this chaos is the
central theme of the Origin of the Beginning series and simultaneously van Veluw's reality.
