Art Exhibition: “Between Pixel and Particle”

Jun 29, 2024 at 1:00pm ~ Jul 14, 2024 at 8:00pm

CONTRAST is pleased to present “between pixel and particle,” a solo exhibition by Sander Wassink @sander__wassink , a Dutch artist and designer based in Japan and the Netherlands, from June 29th, Saturday to July 14th, Sunday.

As Wassink lives in Japan and works primarily for European clients, his daily life unfolds largely within the digital realm—through pixels, screens, and virtual interactions. While this mode of existence has advantages, it has, over time, fostered a profound sense of disconnection from the tactile world that exists outside his studio.

This exhibition arises from his quest to reconcile these two realms, softening the divide and addressing the alienation he has felt. The primary goal of the work is to push him away from my computer and towards engaging with the physical world. The exhibition invites visitors to contemplate the flow of energy that connects the dots between pixel and particle, digital and physical, isolation and interconnectedness. Each piece is a portal through which we might glimpse the foundational energies that animate both our world and the digital one.

From a tent that resembles the artist’s land, the exhibition consists of found objects, a world where digital and nature intersect, and an installation that spans three floors. On the B1F level, where he collaborated with the publishing label Rondade @rondade_contents to create a spatial composition, an art book that compiles the 10 years of his works will also be on display and for sale.

Amid constant construction and production, Wassink shifts the focus to what is discarded, abandoned, and left behind, aiming to reconstruct their potential.

Whether it is the facade of a partially demolished building or the everyday remnants of a culture of overproduction, he explores undeveloped and unknown forms and aesthetics waiting to be discovered and appreciated.

His works are in the collections of museums around the world, including MoMA in New York and Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
