Ten recent graduates focus on their own family tree.
Curators: Fenne Saedt (NL) and Lieneke Hulshof (NL).
In Mother(Land), the artists showed that your identity is shaped by your personal history and the places where that history took place. When we look at our parents, and their ancestors, the land they walked on, the cities they lived in, the work they did or the struggles they fought, we come across stories that still inhabit us somewhere deep within. Those stories are now lived; crawl through your skin, feed your taste and define your outlook. They form a family tree: an idea that permeated all the works in this group exhibition. Sometimes literally, sometimes in the form of religions that characterized their childhood, the country of origin that no longer exists or old friendships that have come to feel like a family. An exhibition showing an array of art forms. From sculptures to costumes, from photography to ceramics.
