Annï Mertens is a Luxembourgish artist living in Utrecht, Netherlands. She is working with a wide range of material such as wood, concrete and ceramics. Saturated and pastel colours dominate her installations, which provoke the viewer’s imagination to dive into an absurd sculptural landscape. Nothing is what it seems. She playfully bends, coats and twists materials in such a way that it is hard to distinguish what’s solid and what’s porous, what’s delicate and what’s not. Mertens’ sculptures are a result of studying material through an intuitive process. They always contain playful elements, questioning if we ever outgrow the urge to play?
