Bruce Silverstein is delighted to announce the representation of Dutch contemporary artist, Marjan Teeuwen.  Her first gallery exhibition outside of Europe, Destroyed House will open in February 2018.

In her aptly titled body of work, Destroyed House, Teeuwen reclaims the wreckage of abandoned buildings assembling each fragment in painstakingly detailed installations, set within the original structures.  These temporary living artworks are present for their surrounding community to experience, but they ultimately exist only through the carefully composed photographic images which Teeuwen captures for posterity with her large-format camera.  Her images illuminate the precarious balance of the power of destruction with the constructive implications of order and function.
