Standing on the edge, Between The Lines. At her solo, the Dutch artist showcases her newest photo-works as well as works from her last three series: sketches for her installations.
At her solo in VERVERS gallery the Dutch artist Marieke Bolhuis will showcase her newest photo-works as well as works from her last three series. She mainly exhibited abroad, in the U.S.A, New York and Japan, Kyoto.
For -Standing on the edge, Between The Lines- she makes sketches for her installations. The thinking in this process is more important than the practicability. Seven years ago she stopped making insitu works and she shifted her approach towards photography. Small scale objects and models that are build in the studio are photographed and placed in the landscape-photo’s. This way the thinking can be faster and the working process more comprehensive.
The last serie is a continuation of a long term project that relates to the origins of civilization and the crust. Therefore she photographed the Teutonic fault line, that goes from the current to the ancient and prehistoric world, from the Middle-East, Egypt and Jordan to Ethiopia.
The new crust is pushed up and brought to order in a raw new world. People sow and create. Bolhuis’ objects are made of earth related materials like clay, glass and cement. The individual pieces are like Earth. The form may be referring to seed, dandelion, coral and the wheel ... The titles underline the link with current events, history and decay.
Marieke Bolhuis (born 1962) studied art at the AKI in Enschede and at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam.
