Connecting Geographies
Marjolijn Boterenbrood

13-21 January 2024
Het Glazen Huis, Amstelpark

This two-week installation asks us to look deeper at the interconnectedness of the world around us. Through a variety of techniques artist Marjolijn Boterenbrood will present site-based works alongside a work produced during a workshop about entangled life (inspired by the Amstelpark) with the students of the Academy of Architecture. The performance will be about the connection between these works and her recent travel.

 

THE CITY AS ANTHOLOGY:
MOVEMENTS AT THE MARGINS OF PUBLIC SPACE

Mariken Overdijk
ArtEZpress 2023

This book is about bodies. About how bodies traverse the familiar surroundings of one’s home or move along the familiar routes of everyday life, but also about the relation of bodies to the public space. On another level, the book shows what the meaning of artistic research can be.

Research recounts experiments and experiences, collections and vistas gained by the researcher during the course of their work. This book shows that any good (artistic) research creates futures. The book stages research, wanders, interrogates, describes, draws, explores, and thus offers a series of choreographies of ordinary life.

Mariken Overdijk makes clear that a work of art is not a one-time, singular event, but creates a possibility that, however minimal, changes lives forever.
