The Poisson’s Equation, 2014

In a desolate, nocturnal landscape a barren tree slowly rotates around its axe above a small pond, its roots touching the water surface. The Poisson’s Equation is an equation used in electrostatics, theoretical physics and the calculation of gravitational forces. In this case, the latter applies. Throughout the years, the works of Alexandra Crouwers (NL, º1974) have evolved from monumental drawings into the digital realm of (3D) animation and video installations. She studied painting at the Academy for Arts & Design (AKV St. Joost) in Den Bosch (NL), and graduated as a Master of Fine Arts at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. Her works were screened at many international festivals (Transmediale, Berlin, Microwave Festival, Hong Kong, 700IS, Reykjavik, Impakt, Utrecht), and exhibitions (Le Fresnoy Studio National des Art Contemporaines (Tourcoing, FR), SMAK museum (Ghent, B).
