GÜLTIGKEITSDAUR (PERIOD OF VALIDITY)
(2017)

mixed media



Exhibition in Foundation B.a.d. Rotterdam,  July 2017

works by Karin Arink, Marijke Appelman, Selma Hengeveld
text work Natasha Rijkhoff
curated by Selma Hengeveld

The exhibition centers around evoking memories. Memories of a very recent journey and memories of a working process from long ago. The different circumstances, the unforeseen meetings and the developments and insights that were created then. As makers we go forward while keeping the things that are left behind in mind. The same goes for this exhibition, which will inevitably turn into a memory.

Selma Hengeveld has documented a short journey using photographs, receipts, flyers and notes, and has translated these into a special remembrance document. This way a different journey appears; a new reconstruction of real events. The work blurs the borders between fact and fiction and investigates the function of a scrapbook as a means to hold on to memories.

Apart from her own work, Selma selected works from Karin Arink and Marijke Appelman. Out of their oeuvre she has chosen work that was made a long time ago, which will now make connections with her own new work.

Natasha Rijkhoff makes and writes and will add to the exhibition with words.
