In the field of Art Conservation, our staff is experienced in the conservation and restoration of modern and contemporary art. We work with a variety of materials, ranging from plastics, food-art, kinetic art, outdoor sculptures, conceptual art to mixed-media installations.
The preservation of modern and contemporary art is often complex. It usually has excellent substantive complexity in combination with a variety of materials. Modern materials used by artists often begin to age from day one, which can be noticeable in aesthetic appearance and impair their material integrity. This instability means that the materials often have a relatively short lifespan. Hybridity (combination of different materials) usually also occurs, making treatment more difficult. Based on specialised knowledge, ethics and multidisciplinary thinking, our restorer can do justice to the work of art by treating it appropriately.
