« At this point you have a choice to make. You can descend further into the Inner Earth-and perhaps make contact with that advanced civilization. Or you can consider yourself fulfilled, and proceed no further. I would advise the latter. After all. you're probably tired and hungry. As for a meal, why not send out for some Chinese food ? While awaiting delivery, you can bathe yourself in light of the pyramid. Dine with gusto. And then it's back to the surface. Your visit to the Inner Earth has concluded. And it has been a memorable experience. »
Excerpt from 'Visitors to the Inner Earth' by Professor Solomon


Ensemble is pleased to present a new installation of works from innovative Dutch artist Tommy Smits. Smits uses techniques of custom framing and sculpture to elevate vernacular and everyday imgaery into surreal photographic objects. For his exhibition at Ensemble, Smits presents a new installation of thirty-two tooth-shaped sculptures, each unique.

Tommy Smits est un artiste multimédia néerlandais. Il travaille comme photographe, cinéaste, directeur artistique et sculpteur. Smits vise à transformer des objets contemporains et des photographies en fossiles, son objectif principal dans la vie est de devenir un jour lui-même un fossile. En coulant des photos dans le béton, Smits prétend avoir inventé le béton-photographique, qu'il désignera sous le nom de «Concrétographie», une méthode de solidification des photographies dans la roche.
