Marie Hendriks - 'Meisjes met rode haren'

08/09/2017 - 28/10/2017

For her first exhibitions at Jozsa gallery, Marie Hendriks takes us in a personal and complex world between reality and fiction. Plausible, her « out of time » spaces combine childhood memories and folk tales, while plunging the viewer into the uncanny.

Her work (photos, drawings, videos, sculptures) falls within a personal mythology and points out the uneasiness of the comforting rationality of the daily life. They aren’t use for drama but propose a vision without empathy, between catharsis and collective unconsciousness. The artist shows us indirectly, with derision, situations of doubt, trouble and obsessions. The images, beyond their beauty and perceived familiarity, turn out to be disturbing, returning us to a part of ourselves.
