Solo show ‘Spirits & Trophies’

June14 - August 8.
Chrystl Rijkeboer is known for her extraordinary, unusual material: human hair. In the late nineties, out of curiosity and somewhat by happenstance, she began to experiment with this fragile yet extremely strong and powerful material. Since then she has been spinning hair into threads which she processes into striking artworks.

'Memories', 'Identity' and ‘Spirituality’, are central to Chrystl’s work. Human hair symbolizes deep human emotions. She feels hair is of great importance and the right material to use in her work because it symbolizes these specific human facets of consciousness. Human hair stirs up divergent meanings: a lock of hair evokes the memory of a loved one, a hairstyle becomes an expression of personal identity. Conversely, hair is also used in evil curses, and its forceful removal is a sign of power and domination.

The exhibition ‘Spirits & Trophies’ shows works that refer to the theme ‘Spirituality’. It harks back to a time of primordial humankind and the emergence of consciousness, when humans began to make images and felt that they could derive magical powers from them.
In ‘Spirits & Trophies,’ frailness, strength and power converge.

Saturday June 21 (14:00 hours) a special one-time-only tour and ‘Artist Talk’ about the exhibition will be held at the museum. Artist Chrystl Rijkeboer talks about her inspiration. She will also discuss her work process and the works featured in this exhibition.
