Origin of the Beginning: Art Installations by Levi van Veluw

Published May 10, 2019

‘Origin of the Beginning’ is a series of impressive installations by Dutch artist Levi van Veluw.

Levi draws inspiration from his own childhood memories to develop a narrative and his own brand of self-portraiture.

From his website:

“The artist has created 3 ‘rooms’ covered with more than 30.000 wooden blocks, balls and slats respectively (without any digital manipulation). Each ‘room’ is executed as a life-size installation (4m x 2.5m x 2.5m) and will be presented at the gallery together with photographs and videos. Portrayed in one piece is a desk, a table lamp, a bookcase. The edge of the table is burned by Levi van Veluw as he had an obsession for fire. All of these objects including every inch of the floor, walls and ceiling is covered in the same material: 14,000 16 cm2 dark brown wooden blocks. The blocks are made by the artist and glued on the wall one by one. The works suggest a narrative world behind the abstract portraits.

These installations are inspired by different aspects of van Veluw’s boyhood bedroom, where he spent many solitary hours between the ages of 8 and 14.”
