Since ten years Rachel de Joode (NL, 1979 – lives in Berlin) has a major solo exhibition in The Netherlands.
Kunstfort at Vijfhuizen proudly presents Rachel de Joode – Flat Nature / Surface Bodies. In the “Genieloods” and on the island, the artist shows a comprehensive exhibition of new work, including five outdoor sculptures. De Joode was one of the first to combine sculptural objects and photographic prints with references to internet aesthetics. The artist is known for her “sculptural photography”, for which she prints and cuts pictures of natural materials in organic forms. De Joode also developed new works in which only the sculptural frame is left. Her flat objects in public space resonate with the omnipresence of image in our contemporary society, but also with the plane surroundings of the Kunstfort. The landscape becomes a “bühne”, in which De Joode’s images take the lead. But to what extent will nature allow to get reduced to just a frame?
