Meadow at Indianapolis Museum of Art The Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields commissioned us to create an interactive Meadow. This large-scale, kinetic light sculpture comprises of 18 mechanical blossoms that open and close in response to visitors passing below. This will mark the first time this installation has been exhibited in America and will be on view for one year until 22 February 2020.


Shelley Selim, Associate Curator of Design and Decorative Arts: “The enduring appeal of Lonneke and Ralph’s work is their ability to merge art, design, and technology in a way that sparks wonder for their audiences,” “Meadow captures this beautifully—not only by using cutting-edge tech to mimic nature’s scientific laws, but by evoking the unquantifiable, intrinsic awe and amazement that nature inspires in humankind. I am so thrilled that visitors to Newfields will be the first to see this fantastic piece on American soil.”

Pace will participate in the 2019 edition of TEFAF Maastricht, featuring a collection of works by modern and contemporary masters. The centrepiece of Pace’s presentation will be a selection of paintings and drawings by Piet Mondrian, from the personal collection of fabled dealer and Mondrian’s close friend Sidney Janis that illustrate the emergence and significance of abstraction in modern art. Mondrian’s evolution and interest in nature resonate with Pace’s presentation of contemporary artists at TEFAF which includes Studio Drift’s new work from the Materialism series, Bicycle from 2018.

Materialism premiers at Frieze LA. Drift’s most recent work Materialism will be launched internationally at Frieze art fair in Los Angeles through Pace gallery.

Materialism confronts us on a very elementary level with the things we surround ourselves with and the materials that comprise them. The work calls for contemplation on how we deal with the raw materials at our disposal.
