For Ends Meet, Marijn Bax has investigated the archive and studio of the artist Gisèle van Waterschoot van de Gracht. Gisèle’s note “Where is the frontier of like and love?” formed the basis for her new work which will be exhibited by Castrum Peregrini in Gisèle’s former studio.
Marijn Bax’ work and aspiration is driven by a deep interest in the human psyche and how humans relate to their physical and mental environment. Based on personal stories she addresses universal themes and creates opportunities to question our own behaviour and how our perception is continuously influenced.
Photography is her stepping stone towards a variety of media and materials such as video, audio, writing, 3D installations and public opinion, to reflect upon this invisible and complex matter.
Marijn Bax (1981) graduate from the Academy of Art and Graphics – Sint Joost, Breda, NL. Site-specific installations based on historical stories are her main focus. In 2015 she received the Talent Development Grant from the Mondriaan Fund for emerging artists.
On Saturday 17, Sunday 18 and Sunday 25 september, between 14 – 17 hrs the artist will be present in a ‘dialogue with the audience without words’. For additional programme see our Facebook page.
