Luckily, we do not have to be perfect

3 July 2021 @ 11:00 am - 30 July 2021 @ 5:00 pm


Originally a stand-out submission for the 2020 Linen Biennale (which was unable to happen) this exhibition features mixed media linen-based sculptural pieces by Dutch artist Birgit Schoenaker

Birgit says: “The artworks are a mix of materials and objects, composing a new image, to tell a story, my story. With the form and shape, having something which can be recognized, it makes it easy to have your own thoughts. The title of the work is sometimes the introduction to the story, to give a little bit of humor.

My story is a search to the why, being fragile, searching for patterns in which our brain finds something to hold on. In which the delusion of the day seduces us. Where we forget to enjoy the small things we already have. Without shouting for attention, in its being simple and respectful. Nothing taken for granted, trying to see the things from another perspective.”
