Gehaakte Gordijntjes – Crocheted Curtains

Exhibited: 11 November – 8 December, 2023
Toi Pōneke Gallery, Wellington, NZ.

Gehaakte Gordijntjes – Crocheted Curtains, explored how the 21 houses I grew up in (both in New Zealand and the Netherlands) influenced my understanding of ‘home’ and helped to shape my identity as a Dutch/New Zealander.”

Included in the exhibition were mixed media artworks created over a 7 year period, exploring architectural concepts based on memory, tradition, experience, and migration. Using recycled house materials, the exhibition wove between painting, drawing and installation; intersecting the past, present, and future. Exhibited collectively the gallery was transformed into an abstract house, an assemblage of doors, windows, curtains, tiles.…. interior elements which invited contemplation of the sense of home we all carry within.
