You Know I Am Not There

I wrote the essay ‘What remains of Nick Drake’ for this publication accompanying the exhibition You Know I Am Not There of Danielle Lemaire. The essay reflects on the legacy of the British musician, relics and pilgrimages. The monumental drawings of Danielle Lemaire are presented alongside her archive on Drake in a beautiful design by Jeremy Jansen (The Eriskay Connection/ Stedelijk Museum Breda, 2020).

Martha Colburn: Imagined Histories

I wrote the essay ‘Making micro worlds: How Martha Colburn finds the largest of truths in the smallest of things’ for the catalogue of Colburn’s solo exhibition ‘Imagined Histories’ at Marion Art Gallery. The essay focuses on the materiality of her animated films. In her work things – pieces of paper, jigsaw puzzles, fleamarket finds – come to life in an associative world that unlocks personal memories of both the artist and viewer (New York: Fredonia State University, 2019).

Decoding Dictatorial Statues

The book ‘Decoding Dictatorial Statues by graphic designer Ted Hyunhak Yoon explores the choreography of statues in public space. I wrote the essay ‘Stalin’s ear: On the material (after)lives of a statue’ about the layers of meanings attached to the remains of a ‘vanished’ Stalin statue in Berlin. Statues are not so easily destroyed: part of the bronze Stalin statue was melted and recast as animal figures, while two pieces – an ear and part of the moustache – are still to this day on display in a GDR-themed grand-café (Eindhoven: Onomatopee, 2019).
