The studio of Pim Palsgraaf is located in the industrial section of Rotterdam. His love-hate relationship to this environment is fundamental for his art work. In the “Multiscape” sculptures he shows the outgrowths of urban architecture. Comparable to tumors of urban growing he drapes found objects on taxidermy animals to symbolize the contrary of culture and nature. The city seems to overcome the animal and to bring it to its knees. His paintings reveals us the clandestine interior of cities. Deserted rooms, damp corridors and ceilings in danger to collapse at any time show his weakness for urban decline, for the natural environment of men slowly sinking into oblivion.
