Exhibition of artists from the municipalities Landerd and Uden in the context of the merger of those two. Unveiling artwork 'Formation' Sunday, July 5. Information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stefanie continues her search for the pure, real and authentic in people with the merger of the municipalities of Landerd and Uden. She hopes that in this merger, the similarities and contrasts of the 6 different villages may be visible and remain. A new unity that retains the individuality of each one. Because therein lies the beauty. The ísness.
June 16 through July 16, 2017.
In addition to her job as a coordinator in Special Education, Stefanie studied at the ArtEZ, University of the Arts in Arnhem. During her graduation year, she is looking into the origins of psychiatric labels that are placed on people and the reasonableness of this. Because if there is such a thing as 'abnormal', there also must be a norm for 'normal'. But what is normal? Who is normal? And who determines that? Stefanie translates her resistance against the excesses of sticking labels on people into visual work.
