Marijke van Warmerdam 'Dichtbij in de verte' at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam

A hat dancing on the wind, flowers blooming or a girl doing a handstand. In her work, Marijke Van Warmerdam (1959) chooses remarkably simple subjects. She makes use of image constructions, photo and film techniques, which provide an open and unexpected perspective which asks attention for the simple beauty of trivialities.

It is more than ten years since a retrospective of her work has been held in the Netherlands. This autumn Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is showing a major retrospective exhibition of her diverse oeuvre. The exhibition is curated by Jan Debbaut, former director of collections at Tate in London.

From October 29 2011 until January 22 2012.
