RADIANT MATTER

Published by Onomatopee, Eindhoven, NL

Wandering stars have occupied the human mind across centuries and millennia, along with the quest to explore and colonize cosmic space. Is there something in us that refuses to believe that we are alone in the universe? Does our longing for the stars conceal something different? To what extent can fiction shape future realities?

The construction of such inquiries are at the centre of Marjolijn Dijkman’s work, which pivots around humankind’s fascination for cosmic space, the position of our planet in the universe, and human subjectivity in relation to celestial bodies. Radiant Matter comprises a series of recent artworks that desire to analyse and reflect on the nature of scientific inquiry, the role of speculation, fiction and spiritualism.

Together with a poetic image essay and a conversation between the artist and the editor Kris Dittel, this widely illustrated book includes texts by Maarten Vanden Eynde, Ken Hollings and Raqs Media Collective.

Launch History Rising Publication

2015: published by Onomatopee, NL

History Rising is a subversive and engaging study of museum display by artist Marjolijn Dijkman and curator Jes Fernie. By distancing museum objects from their support structures the project seeks to critique the assumptions that are made about how things are positioned, who chooses to display them, and how the social, political and aesthetic choices that are made in the process dictate the language of display.

This book is made up of visual and written essays, an interview between the artist and curator, an inventory of works, and documentation of Dijkman’s installations in museums and galleries in the UK. These installations propose strange and fantastical juxtapositions, alleviate objects from the weight of history and create links with modernism, the heritage industry and the aesthetics of sci-fi.

Art & Ecology Now

May 2014, published by Thames & Hudson

The first survey of its kind to explore contemporary art that focuses on ecology From land art and earthworks in the 1960s to conceptual art of the new millennium, ecology-focused art has been a prominent genre in the art world for decades. This book offers a look into the recent explosion in contemporary art that deals directly with nature, the environment, climate change, and ecology. Organized into six thematic chapters, Art & Ecology Now moves through the various levels of artists’ engagement, from those who document and reflect on nature, to those who use the physical environment as the raw material for their art, and committed activists who set out to make art that transforms both our attitudes and our habits.

Including works by: Allora & Calzadilla, Edward Burtynsky, Marjolijn Dijkman, Tue Greenfort, Hans Haacke, Eva Jospin, Nadav Kander, Yao Lu, David Maisel, Gustav Metzger, Svetlana Ostapovici, Nyaba Leon Ouedraogo, and more.

P.E.A.R. issue no. 6, Landscape and Ecology

20.02.2014: Magazine launch, British Council, London, UK

P.E.A.R. (Paper for Emerging Architectural Research) aims to re-establish the fanzine as a primary medium for the dissemination of architectural ideas, musings, research and works, and to present the complexity and variety of architectural practice. We actively seek to publish thinking that wouldn’t ordinarily be seen in the mainstream architectural press, and we are interested in showing that the architectural is concerned with more than just architecture.
