Article in Chigaco based artforum Colossal, by Grace Ebert.

Artist Chrystl Rijkeboer contemporizes sentimental porcelain figurines with a present-day twist: spiky COVID-19 molecules obscure the characters’ facial features, rendering the largely wealthy and ornately dressed figures both anonymous and commonplace in modern contexts.
Whether posing for a portrait or mid-curtesy, Rijkeboer’s pieces satirize the long-crafted Meissen figurines, which have been in production since the 18th Century and often romanticize an antiquated world “where women do not represent any relevance but being nice and glamourous,” she tells Colossal. “For me, it is mostly about the position as a woman and an artist. The pandemic made it quite clear that artists are the first to be labeled as unnecessary.”
Living and working in Haarlem, The Netherlands, Rijkeboer has crafted an extensive COVID-themed collection, which includes ubiquities like Zoom calls and masks, all of which you can see on her site.

Dangerous liaisons

‘Rosebud’ at Vishal, Haarlem.

What is the motive for an artist to make work. Is it an event? An object? A person? An abstract idea? An obsession? In this exhibition, the members of the Vishal show, in addition to their own work, their personal 'Rosebud' in the form of photos, text, drawings, objects or whatever they consider important for this theme. My contribution 'Autumn Days'. This exhibition runs from October 17 until November 8.

‘Klei in beweging’

'Play Safe' is mijn deelname aan de tentoonstelling 'Klei in beweging'.
Ter gelegenheid van het 40-jarig bestaan van Stichting KLEI en het tijdschrift KLEI keramiek magazine was er een wedstrijd met als thema ‘KLEI in beweging’. Uit 225 geanonimiseerde inzendingen koos de jury 41 werken voor de tentoonstelling. Op 4 oktober zal de jury hieruit de nummers 1, 2 en 3 kiezen; helaas is er vanwege Corona geen feestelijke opening en prijsuitreiking mogelijk. Bezoekers kunnen gedurende de expositie kiezen voor de publieksprijs door een stembriefje in te vullen. De catalogus is te koop bij Huis73 en via

Huis73, ingang Hinthamerstraat 74, 's-Hertogenbosch. Open: maandag t/m vrijdag 9.00-21.00 uur, zaterdag en zondag 9.00-17.00 uur. Van 1 oktober t/m 25 oktober 2020.
