It is when comparing their photographic works about the collapse of ancient factories that Erris Huigens and Gysbert Zijlstra reveale the omnipresence of geometric forms. Together, they started to purify these images and generate one kind of abstract and geometric forms repertory, fixed in our post-industrial era. Their black-and-white paintings, extremely precises and mechanical, present the buildings and the city as living organisms.
