German artist Katharina Grosse will be showing her new exhibit, Two Younger Women Come In and Pull Out a Table at De Pont Museum of Contemporary Art in Tilburg, the Netherlands, starting this week. 

The artist's enormous technicolour works of styrofoam, acrylic and and plastic create surreal dreamscapes in galleries and street corners. In One Floor Up More Highly, jagged shards of crystal styrofoam emerge from hillocks and boulders of dyed soil. In Atoms Inside Balloons, enormous latex balls float and dangle from the ceiling, while Faux Rocks features globular marbles of styrofoam that seem suspended in mid-bounce.

Her work investigates the intersection between gallery and street art, performance and installation, graffiti and abstract expressionism, putting the viewer in the centre of the work.

Two Younger Women Come In and Pull Out a Table will be at the De Pont Museum in Tilburg from 16 February to 9 June.
