Another Body, an exhibition by…
13 students from the jewelry department have been approaching issues such as beauty, health and perfection, considering the malleable, normal and deviations from the norm, reflecting upon the relationship between appearance and identity and asking questions about our desires and the price we are willing to pay for them.
This exhibition is not only the result of three months of study, it is even more an invitation for a deepening dialogue between art, design and the medical world.
April 23 - May 23

15 lightboxes as a sea of flowers
Leaving flowers and cuddly toys at scenes of crime and injustice has become a popular ritual. A new ‘tradition’ expressing collective grief. These transient monuments in public space are a symbol of a feeling in between helplessness and acceptance. Helplessness because we are mad with grief; acceptance because we leave flowers, cuddly toys and candlelights instead of revolting against violence and injustice.
By rephotographing her manual adaptations of old photographs of flowers, Mariken Wessels gives them a second life. As a lightbox installation, the ‘monument’ Keepsake is simultaneously abstract and theatrical.
Mariken Wessels graduated in 2008 at Gerrit Rietveld Academie, she published several books, has international shows and her work is part of several art collections. Keepsake is part of the 2014/2015 theme Our Memory, My Identity by Castrum Peregrini.
