dutch artist levi van veluw has illustrated a series of 7 large and 12 small drawings called ‘the collapse of cohesion’ which recreate various elements from his own boyhood bedroom with a sinister undertone. thematically, order turns into chaos: collapsing desks, falling cupboards and exploding cabinets mark moments of unexpected and catastrophic of disruption.

 

these built structures typical of households are affected by great forces of nature such as gravity, water and wind, wrecking them into piles of detritus and heaps of rubble. the chachol works play on our innate fascination for destruction and need for disorder, while still maintaining compositional balance. the falling objects has a logic that is bound by physics and the placement of each element in the drawings was was a preconceived choice of the artist.
