‘Looking without analysing’; Riki Mijling’s sculptures made of corten steel and metal – recently in combination with glass – trigger to observe without necessarily feeling the urge to interpret or explain.

Riki Mijling Dutch visual artist spends one month in Budapest for the invitation of Parallel Foundation. The aim of the artist-in-residence program is to introduce acknowledged representatives of the concrete, non-objective, geometric art movements; to create a unique artist platform and to contribute to the creative process.

‘Looking without analysing’; Riki Mijling’s sculptures made of corten steel and metal – recently in combination with glass – trigger to observe without necessarily feeling the urge to interpret or explain. Her work grows through melding Mind and Matter, her love for raw materials and the spiritual charging of the object. Personally loaded vacuum, or, as Mijling calls it, ‘showing the emptiness’ – the attraction of her work is hidden in this paradox.
The manner in which mass and emptiness inside Mijling’s work function together is without meaning in the sense that no story is being told – and yet the emptiness in her work is a simulacrum, a semblance.
