This Art Fair

evavanooijen1

This december I wil participate in This Art Fair with my project ‘Fragmented Traveling’.

‘Fragmented Traveling’ is the documentation of a journey.
I investigate rituals, belief, the miraculous, chance… All with the underlying question, how can I, and how do others, live with the knowledge that life is ending.

After becoming a mother the idea of death became hard for me to accept. Being alive was never so important. In these turbulent times I needed something to believe in. My quest for that something became like a pilgrimage, in which I found fragments of hope. Physically I did not travel far but my mind went everywhere.

‘Fragmented Traveling’ is about a journey without a destination.

Seeing Through Photographs

I recently finished the MoMa course ‘Seeing Through Photographs’ and was inspired by the lessons and work of Robert Heinecken.

In his serie ‘Are You Rea’ he takes magazine pages and by making a photogram of them he fuses the front and the back of the page together into one image.

When looking in magazines now I am not interested in the single images, but in what happens when turning the page to the light, and, by doing so, fusing the front and the back of the page together into one image. What does this new image look like and what does it tell me?

I started to collect the pages that spoke to me the most and instead of making a photogram like Heinecken I put them in the scanner and scanned them as if they were a negative. This has the effect of fusing the front and back of the page together just like a photogram would do. I now have a small series, from which a selection is shown below.
